A COLLAPSING structure injured 23 workers Monday at a Cambodian factory producing garments for fashion brand H&M, police said, the latest incident to raise concerns about regional industrial safety.

At least 23 workers were injured at a Cambodian factory that produced western fashion on Monday, police said, the latest incident to raise concerns about industrial safety in the region.

A concrete and metal shelter, where workers were resting during their lunch break, fell down in the compound of the Hong Kong Chinese-owned Top World factory located in Phnom Penh, said local police chief Hy Narin.

"The shelter is old and it collapsed into the lake while the workers were having lunch there," he told AFP.
