The army in Bangladesh says 804 people have been confirmed dead after the collapse of an eight-storey factory building near the capital Dhaka.

Authorities are continuing to search the rubble for more bodies two weeks after the Rana Plaza building collapsed on 24th April.

Bangladesh's largest industrial disaster sparked outrage among workers in the country.

Several people, including the building's owner, have been arrested.
