Multistory Building Collapses in Dhaka, Killing 15


A multistory building collapsed on Saturday in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, killing at least 15 people and injuring more than 40 others.

The Phoenix building in Dhaka's industrial district housed a garment factory, shops and offices. Officials say about 100 workers were inside when the building crumbled, and many were trapped under the rubble.

Rescuers are trying to reach survivors by using bulldozers and cranes to lift heavy slabs of concrete.

Bangladeshi soldiers, police, fire officials and volunteers are all taking part in the rescue efforts.

Reports say construction workers were renovating the upper floors of the building at the time of the collapse.

Earlier in the week in Bangladesh, a fire destroyed a textile factory in Chittagong, killing at least 54 workers.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
