Bangladesh reflects on factory disaster

The Rana Plaza factory collapsed one year ago and killed 1,129 workers.

    It has been a year since the Rana Plaza factory collapsed in Bangladesh, killing 1,129 garment workers in one of the world's worst industrial disasters.

    To mark the anniversary of the collapse, garment workers marched 200 metres from the group's headquarters to the Pan Pacific Hotel.

    Factory owners and international retail brands are under pressure to compensate the families of  victims and survivors, many of whom no longer have an income.
