Buried alive, left to die… Hue & cry


LAHORE: Bereaved families of the victims are protesting over slow pace of rescue work as hopes of finding more survivors in the rubble of a collapsed factory in Lahore are fading.

Soldiers and rescuers in Lahore have pulled 108 people out of the rubble of the four-storey factory in Lahore alive, with at least 24 people confirmed dead, officials said, carefully cutting through steel and using cranes and heavy machinery to lift the debris.

The collapse occurred at the Rajput Polyester polythene bag factory in the Sundar industrial estate, around 45 kilometres (30 miles) southwest of Lahore’s city centre.

CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif as ordered an inquiry in the matter.
