The death toll from a fire in a clothes factory in Bangladesh has leapt to at least 120.

The fire broke out late yesterday in the nine-floor Tazreen Fashion factory in the Ashulia district on the outskirts of the capital Dhaka.

Some people died having jumped from the building trying to escape the flames.

It is still unclear what caused the blaze, which reportedly started on the second floor trapping many victims on the floors above.

Earlier reports said eight people had been killed in the fire, but the scale of the tragedy became clear when rescue workers entered the building today.
