At least 124 people have reportedly been killed during a fire at a warehouse of Tazreen Fashion in Bangladesh. According to International Labor Rights Forum, the factory had no emergency exits and workers were either burnt alive or died when they tried to jump out of the eight-story building in order to escape the flames. Tazreen Fashion is a unit of the Tuba Group, whose clients reportedly include Wal-Mart, Target, Carrefour and C&A, which is owned by Cofra Holding. The accident has raised concerns about the safety of workers who make clothing in Bangladesh for companies such as Li & Fung.
