Atleast 15 killed in Bangladesh factory blast
Sept 10. Dhaka: Atleast 15 people were killed in Bangladesh in a huge fire triggered by a boiler explosion at a packaging factory in Tongi, on Saturday.
According to the local Police, around 100 people were working inside the building when the blast hit the four-storey factory, injuring nearly 30 people, as the flames engulfed the building.
"We've got confirmation of at least 10 dead. But the toll will go up as the fire is still not under control," police inspector Sirajul Islam told the AFP news agency.
