A Bangladeshi court has refused bail to the owner and director of a garment factory building that collapsed last month, killing 73 people.
At least 83 others were injured when the nine-story building imploded with hundreds of employees inside during the busy night shift. A number of people are still unaccounted for.
The two men, factory owner Shahriar Sayeed Hossain and company director Abul Hashem Fakir, had been in hiding since the April 11th accident. They have been charged with death by negligence.
Government investigators say the country's worst industrial accident was caused by faulty construction. The factory -- in Palashbari, 30 kilometers from the capital, Dhaka -- was built on a swamp and constructed without the proper building permits.
Bangladesh's garment industry employs almost two million people, most of them women.
