The crisis in the garments sector goes unabated in Bangladesh. On January 30, 2008 two workers in World Dresses Ltd, Mirpur, Dhaka, were attacked and beaten by management staff at the end of an evening shift. One died at 3am, the other is still hospitalised with broken limbs. Fearing unrest management closed the factory on Thursday. When knowledge of the attack reached the company's workers, hundreds demonstrated outside the factory.
