ISTANBUL - Six people have been arrested after at least five workers - including four Syrian refugees - were killed in a textile factory fire in Turkey's biggest city of Istanbul.

Four of those who died reportedly tried to lock themselves into a toilet to escape the flames but died from smoke inhalation in the blaze in the Güngören district of the city.

Another six workers were taken to hospital following the fire in the four-storey building housing the factory, according to a statement from the Istanbul Governor’s Office.
