Thousands of garment factory workers have protested in the capital, Dhaka, over the death of more than 150 workers in building collapse, as rescuers continued to hunt for survivors, local media have reported.
The protests come a day after a garment factory collapsed killing at least 161 and there are fears the death toll might go up, even as criticism mounted of foreign firms that source cheap clothes from the country.
After visiting the disaster site, Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir, interior minister, told reporters the building had violated construction codes and that "the culprits would be punished".
