Dhaka, (Daily Star): Rescuers pulled out 18 more bodies from the debris of Rana Plaza in Savar as the rescue operation stepped into 14th straight day on Tuesday.

With the fresh recovery, the death toll from the deadly building collapse soared to 697, according to a control room which is opened to provide information on the Savar tragedy.

Rescuers still expect more bodies from the rubble of Rana Plaza at Savar as many have remained missing since the country’s deadliest industrial disaster on April 24.

Rana Plaza, which housed several garment factories, collapsed after owners forced several thousand workers to work there even after cracks had developed on some pillars and floors the day before.

It is still unclear how many workers were there on that fateful day.
