Workers at a garment factory just streets away from the recently-collapsed garment factory building, protest as they refuse to work when they found cracks in their current office building, Tuesday, April 30, 2013 in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh. Emergency workers hauling large concrete slabs from the collapsed eight-story building said Tuesday they expect to find many dead bodies when they reach the ground floor.

Army personnel watch as workers toil in the collapsed garment factory building, Tuesday, April 30, 2013 in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh. Emergency workers hauling large concrete slabs from a collapsed 8-story building said Tuesday they expect to find many dead bodies when they reach the ground floor, indicating the death toll will be far more than the official 386. One estimate said it could be as high as 1,400. The illegally constructed, 8-story Rana Plaza collapsed on the morning of April 24, bringing down the five garment factories inside.
