More than 90 people have been killed and hundreds injured after an eight-storey building containing factories and a shopping centre collapsed on the outskirts of the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka.
One of the clothing factories in the building, located in Savar, was manufacturing garments for UK retailer Primark.
The company released the following statement in the wake of the incident:
There were believed to be two thousand people inside the building when it collapsed, many young women, and workers claim factory owners ignored warnings that the block was unsafe after cracks was detected on Tuesday.
