Bangladesh fire victims await compensation

Ahead of safety inspections, victims of a factory fire say they have not received promised compensation.

    Victims of a garment factory fire in Bangladesh two years ago say they have yet to receive compensation.

    Safety experts hired by western retailers will begin a mass inspection of garment factories in Bangladesh on Wednesday, as the country has been under pressure to improve safety standards after a series of accidents over the past two years.

    Al Jazeera's Maher Sattar reports from Ashulia, Bangladesh.
