Mayor arrested over Bangladesh factory disaster

Bangladeshi police have arrested the mayor of the town where a garment factory block collapsed killing 1,129 people, for his role in approving the shoddy structure, an officer said Thursday. Mohammad Refayet Ullah, the mayor of Savar, was arrested in the capital Tuesday exactly three months after the Rana Plaza building collapsed in one of the world’s worst industrial disasters.
Local police chief Mostofa Kamal said Ullah had been wanted for questioning over the nine-storey structure, housing garment factories, that flouted building codes.
