Dozens dead in factory fire in New Delhi

At least 43 people have died in a devastating fire at a building in a crowded grains market area in central New Delhi.

Indian firefighters fought the blaze from 100 metres away because it broke out in one of the area's many alleyways, tangled in electrical wire and too narrow for vehicles to access, authorities at the scene said.

The fire started at a factory space near Sadar Bazaar, New Delhi's largest wholesale market for household goods.
