Bangladesh building collapse raises questions of worker safety

Bangladeshi Army personnel and civilian volunteers work on the scene at a building collapse in Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka, on April 24, 2013.

A building housing several clothing factories collapsed in Bangladesh earlier today. At least 87 people are dead and many others are thought to be trapped in the rubble.

The BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to share the scene from the street and discuss worker safety in the region.
