In the second and concluding article on sweatshop safety prompted by the 
Tazreen disaster in Bangladesh on November 24th, the New York Times 
focused on the nonprofit organization founded by Alice Tepper Marlin 
that gave Ali Enterprises in Karachi a clean bill of health. Just two 
months before the Tazreen fire that resulted in the death of 112 
workers, Ali Enterprises was the scene of another and more devastating 
version of the latter-day Triangle Waistcoat disasters wrought by 
corporate greed:

	Fire ravaged a textile factory complex in the commercial hub of Karachi 
early Wednesday, killing almost 300 workers trapped behind locked doors 
and raising questions about the woeful lack of regulation in a vital 
sector of Pakistan’s faltering economy.
