Dhaka factory collapse: One month on

It has been a month since a huge building collapsed in Dhaka killing garment workers. A Bangladeshi government inquiry has found that poor quality construction materials and building code violations were among the "series of irregularities" that caused the collapse.

More than 1,100 people were killed and more than 2,500 injured after the eight-storey Rana Plaza factory building near Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed on April 24.
