Bangladesh factory death toll tops 900
More bodies could still be found
More than two weeks after the collapse of a factory building in Dhaka, Bangladesh, sources are reporting that the death toll has reached 912 – and additional bodies may be found as workers continue to dig through the wreckage.
Local officials say the local morgue capacity is overwhelmed and that a hastily set up makeshift morgue holds at least 100 badly decomposing bodies, many of whom have not yet been identified.
The tragedy has focused attention on global supply chains and the role companies like Wal Mart and Dress Barn – who sold goods that were manufactured in the collapsed building – should play in improving safety conditions for workers in developing nations.
