Bangladesh building collapse

Bangladesh army soldiers stand at the wreckage of a Bangladeshi garment factory building to offer prayers for the souls of the 1,127 people who died in the structure’s collapse last month, in Savar, Bangladesh, Tuesday, May 14, 2013. The Islamic prayer service was held a day after the army ended the nearly three-week, painstaking search for bodies among the rubble of the worst tragedy in the history of the global garment industry and turned control of the site over to the civilian government for cleanup.

An eight-story building housing several garment factories collapsed near Bangladesh's capital on April 24, killing over 1,000 people and trapping many more in the rubble. It is the worst-ever disaster in Bangladesh's $20 billion-a-year garment industry.
