Bangladesh Death Toll From Collapsed Building Exceeds 500

The death toll for Bangladesh’s worst industrial disaster climbed to 511 as the army continued to clear out debris at a garment-factory building that collapsed on April 24.

Police yesterday arrested Abdur Razzaque Khan, an engineer who worked as a consultant to Sohel Rana, the 38-year-old owner of the collapsed building. The government also suspended Savar Mayor Muhammad Refatullah.
