Women wait for news of their relative, a garment worker, who is still missing after the collapse of Rana Plaza building, in front of missing people posters in Savar, 30 km (19 miles) outside Dhaka April 30, 2013. At least 390 people have been confirmed dead in what is just the latest incident to raise serious questions about worker safety and low wages in the poor South Asian country that relies on garments for 80 percent of its exports.
