Two people have died and 13 were injured in an accident at the Ziri Subedar ship breaking yard in Bangladesh.

The incident happened during the dismantling of a 5,000-teu containership, formerly named CSL Virginia (built 2005), according to a report from NGO Shipbreaking Platform.

The Brussels-based lobby group named the dead men as 35-year-old Aminul Islam and 27-year-old Tushar Chakma.
