DHAKA, April 25 The number of people killed by
the collapse of a building in Bangladesh's capital rose to 147
overnight and the death toll could climb further because many
people are still trapped inside, Dhaka's district police chief
told Reuters on Thursday.
"The death toll could go up as many are still trapped under
the rubble," Habibur Rahman said, a day after the collapse of
the eight-storey building on the outskirts of Dhaka that housed
several garment factories.
Officials said on Wednesday more than 1,000 people had been
injured in the accident.
