    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.
