At least 289 people have died in one of Pakistan's worst fires, at a garment factory in Karachi, officials say.

Rescuers are still battling to reach the dead and injured inside, more than 24 hours after the inferno began.

Hundreds were trapped inside - the building had metal grilles on the windows and no fire exits. Many workers jumped from the upper floors.

The fire began hours after a blaze at a Lahore shoe factory killed 25 people, highlighting lax safety regulations.

Investigations have been announced into both fires. Reports say they may have been caused by faulty generators.
