Buildings flout safety codes in Dhaka

The capital of Bangladesh lies on a fault line and a major earthquake presents a nightmare scenario.

    The building collapse that killed more than 1,000 people in Bangladesh this year exposed the dangerous conditions that millions of workers face.

    But there are still thousands of buildings that do not meet construction codes and hundreds that need to be demolished.
