Bangladesh suffers another garment factory fire

Written by David Styles

DHAKA – At least six workers have been killed in the latest Bangladesh garment factory fire with early reports saying other workers are still missing, so the death toll may rise. This comes a matter of weeks after the decision was made to renew the Bangladesh Accord, the agreement put in place post-Rana Plaza to avoid exactly this kind of incident.

So far just 30 companies out of 200 have re-signed to the Accord’s latest commitments which see the initiative extended until 2021.
