Death toll in Bangladesh garment-factory collapse SURPASSES 300

Death toll in Bangladesh garment-factory collapse SURPASSES 300

As thousands of Bangladeshis swarmed the streets of Dhaka to express their anguish on Friday, setting fire to vehicles and wrestling with police, the death toll in the Rana Plaza building collapse broke the 300 mark.
