Bangladesh Building Collapse

Hundreds of people in Bangladesh are still thought to be trapped following Wednesday's collapse of a building near Dhaka that killed at least 382 people. Most victims are believed to be garment factory workers. Bangladesh has one of the largest garment industries in the world, providing cheap clothing for major Western retailers that benefit from its widespread low-cost labor.
