孟加拉国当局逮捕了与上星期六火灾有牵连的三名工厂官员。那场火灾导致至少110人丧生。

孟加拉国警方首脑在首都达卡说,这三名工厂官员是星期三被逮捕的。有关方面指称,在工厂火警警报响起后,经管人员要员工继续工作,而且门被锁上,工人无法逃生。

火灾发生时,数百名工人无法逃离这座服装厂。消防官员说,没有紧急出口导致一些工人死亡。

星期三,数千工人连续第三天举行抗议,封锁街道,并向建筑物投掷石块。

Authorities in Bangladesh have arrested three factory officials in connection with a fire Saturday that killed at least 110 people.

The police chief in the capital, Dhaka, said the officials were arrested Wednesday amid allegations that managers told employees to return to work after fire alarms rang, and that locked doors trapped workers inside.

Hundreds of workers were unable to get out of the fashion factory as the fire burned. Fire officials say a lack of emergency exits contributed to the number of deaths.

Thousands of workers protested for a third day Wednesday, blocking streets and throwing stones at buildings.
