well called the 1st report of the fire the 1st call was made to very early local time shortly off to fight with him and about 30 fire tenders were rushed to the sport but the challenge is that this area where the fire broke out is that it can jet to that also has less attention portions and the fact trees are actually smaller bookshops and there are questions being raised about if these workshops were legal or not the fire broke out in what is a what is said to be a bag manufacturing factory and this is why we even bore the fire and those were after the squad by the time the rescue operations could be carried out many had already lost their lives in the early hours also had an impact on this so right now authorities are saying that they will be investigating what the cause is but the cause so far is not clear so as those investigations continue we know now at least dozens of people have died the toll expected to rise what more do we know about why
the loss of life is so hard. my call most of the people who have died when labor was working at these workshops and they would actually see the thing in the units which is why at 5 pm they were there was such a large number of people actually present all so this isn't a congested either as i mentioned this is a residential area so there are questions about the permits these workshops have and that is also why maybe the fire safety norms that have to be followed were not being followed as closely as they should have been now of course that up extensive fire safety norms that are implemented across the city but just how closely they are monitored just how well the stock by is questionable because these fire incidents have happened in the boston about just last year in january 17 people lost their lives in a similar factory fire and that was an illegal fire cracker factory so once again we have authorities saying that there will be a total investigation to find out who's responsible but if this will actually
implement changes to prevent such incidences in the future is yet to be seen. and you should just fall for us in delhi thank you very much. are let's have a check now of some of the other stories making news around the world syrian opposition activists say at least 18 people have been killed in airstrikes in it live province the last rebel stronghold in the country's north and west observers say the bombs were dropped from the syrian government and russian aircraft and a further violation of the 3 month old cease fire. strikes across france are continuing throughout the weekend over government plans to overhaul the pension system the strikes are the largest in the country in decades with mass disruption to transport services unions have bound to continue the action into next week. i'm calling the police chief has warned that his squad will use both quote hard and soft tactics in dealing with protesters at a mass rally later today speaking on
