Deadly fire at Bangladesh factory

9 October 2013 Last updated at 09:14 BST

At least nine people have been killed when a fire swept through a clothing factory near the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka.

Local media said about 50 people had been hurt in the blaze, which broke out late on Tuesday in Gazipur.

Safety standards in Bangladesh's garment factories are notoriously poor - more than 1,100 people died in April when a factory outside Dhaka collapsed.
