Fire kills nine at Bangladesh garment factory

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: Nine people were killed on Tuesday evening in a fire at a garment factory in the Bangladeshi town of Gazipur, 40 km north of the capital Dhaka, emergency officials said. A series of deadly incidents at Bangladeshi factories, including a building collapse in April that killed more than 1,100 people, has raised global concern over shaky safety standards in the South Asian country's booming, $20 billion garment industry. Gazipur's firefighting chief, Abu Zafar Ahmed, said nine employees including three company managers had died in the blaze that originated in the knitting section of Aswad Composite Mills factory, a sister concern of Paul Mall Group. About 50 workers were injured in the fire, whose cause had yet to be determined.
