Bangladesh building collapse kills more than 340 people

A horrific accident occurred in an eight-story building on the outskirts of the capital, Dhaka. The building caved on April 24 resulting in the death of almost 340 people. Dhaka city development authority has meanwhile filed a case against the building's owner for the poor construction. Police said they filed another case against the absconding owner and the five garments factories for causing unlawful death. In the meantime, Bangladesh has been caught up in turmoil since the war crimes tribunal sentenced some Jamaat party leaders for atrocities committed during the Liberation War of 1971. Bearing the brunt of the Jamaat's anger has been the minority Hindu community.
