Eight dead in Bangladesh garment factory blaze

A fire in a garment factory in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, has killed at least eight people, police say.

Officials said the blaze happened overnight in the Mirpur industrial district.

It came with the issue of industrial safety in Bangladesh under intense scrutiny after the collapse of an eight-storey building last month.

On Thursday officials confirmed that at least 912 people had died in that disaster.
