Garment workers staged mass protests to demand the end to 'deathtrap' labour conditions after Bangladesh's worst-ever textile factory fire, as a new blaze sparked fresh panic and terror. Ahead of the first of a series of mass funerals for the 110 victims, survivors of Saturday night's blaze joined several thousand colleagues to block a highway and march in the manufacturing hub of Ashulia.
