Bangladesh mourns fire victims

Deadly blaze in factory that made clothes for some of the world's biggest fashion brands leaves families grief-stricken.

    The Bangladeshi garment factory that burned down on Saturday was given a 'high risk' safety warning by US retailer Wal-Mart last year.

    The plant made clothes for the supermarket giant and other big western chains.

    Thousands of people have gathered outside the factory to mourn for the estimated 110 that died.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports.
