A frantic search for survivors is under way at a building outside the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, which collapsed, killing at least 123 people.

Rescue workers with drilling machines are working with volunteers, some using their bare hands, to try to free survivors - some heard crying out.

Tens of thousands of weeping family members are gathered at the site.

The disaster has prompted questions over Bangladesh's chronically poor safety standards.
