We caught this one a few weeks ago…

Thousands of workers at a garment factory in Bangladesh stopped working and rioted earlier this week, demanding that a ghost be removed from their building. The problem began when a female worker said she felt sick and attributed her condition to “an attack by a ghost” inside a toilet in the women’s washroom.

According to news reports, more than 3,000 frightened workers at a plant in the city of Gazipur protested, with dozens of them vandalizing the factory before police used tear gas to quell the riot.

Given the recent tragedy at a different Bangledesh garment factory, and the attendant (and long overdue) discussions about the deplorable conditions these people must work under, we don’t want to make undue light of this bizarre incident.
