Bangladesh Garment Workers Deaths - Worlds Worst Industrial Disaster
Death toll from the collapse of an eight-storey factory building near the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, now stands at 705, officials say. The announcement came after workers pulled dozens more bodies from the rubble. Many people are still missing.
The previous most deadly structural failure in modern times - was the Sampoong department store in Seoul, South Korea, in 1995, in which 502 people died. Hundreds of garment workers who survived the collapse have protested by blocking a highway close to the accident site demanding unpaid wages and benefits.
