*WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT* Firefighters battle a deadly clothing factory blaze in Bangladesh. It's thought as many as 120 people died in the fire - the most ever killed in a Bangladesh factory blaze. Firefighters and soldiers were still pulling the victims out of the nine-storey building Sunday, a day after the fire broke out at the Tazreen Fashion factory. Most of the bodies were burnt beyond recognition when workers were trapped inside - unable to escape through narrow exits. The cause of the blaze had not been identified but poor wiring and locked fire doors often contribute to the hazards here, where factory fires are common.
