Nine-storey factory caused by faulty construction


Faulty construction without approved design is believed to have caused the collapse of a nine-storey factory in Bangladesh on Sunday.

At least 26 people were confirmed dead and 200 more were still trapped in the rubble as NCE went to press. Local experts said that the factory was originally constructed as a four-storey building, with five more floors added without permission.
