Anguished with grief, family members of some the victims killed in a building collapse in Bangladesh drape themselves over the coffins containing their loved ones. More than 320 people have been confirmed dead and hundreds remain unaccounted for. The disaster happened Wednesday when an eight storey building collapsed outside Dhaka. The building housed several factories that make low cost clothing for Western brands. There were more than 3,000 people in the building at the time... most of the workers were women. Miraculously, rescuers have saved about 2500 people. Even 72 hours after the collapse, survivors are still being pulled from underneath the concrete debris. But the disaster has ignited days of violent clashes between protesters and police. Hundreds were on the streets again Saturday morning to show their contempt for the poor working conditions seen in many of factories here. While the search for survivors continues... police are searching for the owner of the building who ignored warnings that the building was structurally unsafe. He's currently on the run.
