Members of the police inspect the garment factory after a devastating fire in Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Nov. 25. A fire swept through Tazreen Fashion factory killing more than 100 people in the country's worst-ever factory blaze.

Witnesses said the workers, mostly women, ran for safety as the fire engulfed the plant, but were unable to come out through narrow exits.

"Many jumped out from the windows and were injured, or died on the spot," said Milon, a resident. "We are appalled to see the charred bodies coming out of the factory since last night. It was an endless stream."
