From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Blaze factory had produced goods for Western firms
Wednesday 28 November 2012
The Bangladeshi factory devastated by a deadly fire on Saturday provided goods to Western firms including Wal-Mart and Disney, it emerged today.
An Associated Press reporter also found evidence that some Western companies were aware of safety failures at the garment factory where 112 workers perished.
Wal-Mart had received an audit deeming the Tazreen factory “high risk” after which it says it cancelled its contract, but said a supplier had continued using it.
Garment workers’ demonstrations over the fire rolled into their third day today with factories closed due to road blocks and stone-throwing.
Police arrested three factory officials after reports that workers trying to flee the eight-floor factory – which had no fire exit – had been locked into the building.
