More than 100 killed in Bangladesh factory fire

Witnesses said the workers, mostly women, ran for safety as the fire engulfed the plant, but were unable to come out through narrow exits.

"Many jumped out from the windows and were injured, or died on the spot," said Milon, a resident. "We are appalled to see the charred bodies coming out of the factory since last night. It was an endless stream."
