Death toll in Bangladesh factory collapse soars past 1,100 as recovery operation continues

SAVAR, Bangladesh - Police say the death toll from the collapse of a garment factory building in Bangladesh has soared past 1,100 as recovery operations continue. Doctors say a seamstress who was rescued 17 days after the eight-story building collapsed is recovering in a hospital, but is exhausted, panicked and dehydrated. Her discovery in the rubble Friday brought a boost to the rescue workers. By Saturday, they had resumed their grim task and the death toll reached 1,115 in the world's worst garment industry disaster.

Bosses arrested over Bangladesh building disaster

Bangladesh Saturday made a series of arrests over the collapse of a factory complex which killed at least 341 as rescuers braved the stench of rotting corpses to detect further signs of life. Twenty-three people were pulled alive Saturday morning from the ruins of the eight-storey Rana Plaza compound which caved in at around 9:00am on Wednesday while thousands of garment workers were stitching clothes for Western brands. But emergency workers warned their task was getting steadily harder as survivors were losing their strength to call for help.
