Cambodia shoe factory collapse kills at least one

A ceiling collapse at a Cambodian shoe factory killed at least one worker on Thursday, police said, with regional industrial safety in the spotlight after last month's disaster in Bangladesh.

"One worker was killed and six others were injured," National police spokesman Kirt Chantharith told AFP, adding that part of the concrete ceiling at the factory in southern Kampong Speu province had crashed onto staff while they were working.
