SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) - Nearly three weeks after a Bangladesh garment-factory building collapsed, the search for the dead is over at the site of the worst accident in the industry's history. The death toll: 1,127.
The army turned over the site to civilian officials after going about a day without finding more bodies from the April 24 collapse. Amazingly, a survivor was pulled out on Friday as some of the last of the dead were being recovered.
Bulldozers and other vehicles have been removed from the building site, which will be fenced with bamboo sticks. Red flags have been erected around the site to bar entry.
The collapse of the Rana Plaza building has focused global attention on hazardous conditions in Bangladesh's powerful garment industry.
