Bangladesh building collapse

A woman grieves as the body of a relative was brought to the morgue after it was pulled out from the rubble of a garment factory building that collapsed last week in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh, Saturday, May 5, 2013. The death toll in the factory building collapse in Bangladesh rose to more than 530 on Saturday, a day after the country's finance minister downplayed the impact of the disaster on the garment industry, saying he didn't think it was "really serious."
