A cement factory collapsed in Bangladesh on Thursday, killing four people and likely trapping about 100 workers who were missing.

Rescuers pulled about 40 survivors from the debris after the factory collapsed in the port town of Mongla, reported Reuters. The factory is run by a subsidiary of the Bangladesh army

"There were about 150 people, including workers, inside the factory building when it collapsed," said Belayet Hossain, the officer in charge of the Mongla Port police station near the factory.

Fire official Mizanur Rahman told The Associated Press many of the survivors were injured and had been taken to hospital. The cause of the collapse is being investigated.

In April 2013, a building containing garment factories collapsed in Dharka, killing more than 1,100 people.
