Add comment on:WalMart fire in Bangladesh kills 117 workers
117 dead in Bangladesh as WalMart clothing factory burns. In these photos taken by citizens of Dhaka, we see relatives mourning the charred remains of the dead. Some had jumped from windows to escape the uncontrolled blaze.The scope of the disaster approaches the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist fire of 1911, where 146 died in the worst factory fire ever, in an almost identical scenario. Even today, the death toll continues to rise. Subsequent reports have noted clothing made for Sears and Disney in the debris.
