The Rana Plaza building collapse: photos of Bangladesh’s ‘blood garments’ factory disaster
WHEN the Rana Plaza building collapsed in Savar, near Dhakar, Bangladesh, many died. The garment factory was littered with more than 300 dead bodies. It is grim. The blame game has begun. The building housed garment factories making clothes for brands like Primark and Mango. Are they now ‘blood garments’? The rescue operation is also underway. Rescuers have bravely dug holes in the horror. Outside it is 90 degrees. Inside it is hellish. At least 80 people have been found alive.
