    Union leaders in Indonesia are calling for the resignation of a government minister after the latest factory fire claimed at least 47 lives.

    The victims, who were cramped together in a small facility when the fire took place, included children.

    Both the owner and the director of the factory have been arrested for lack of safety measures and child labour.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Tangerang, Indonesia.
