Garment workers trapped in the rubble plead for help. Rescuers, some in hardhats and others wearing slippers, dig through the broken concrete. They fashion bolts of colorful cloth into makeshift stretchers to lift and carry hurt survivors and dead victims.
Thousands of relatives wail their grief and worry outside a collapsed building in Savar, Bangladesh, where more than 300 people were killed and 2,200 rescued.
It is the worst-ever disaster in Bangladesh's $20 billion-a-year garment industry, which supplies global retailers but is notorious for its poor safety record.
Here are some images from the scene.
