Bangladesh to end search for victims of building collapse

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — Bangladesh's military is ending its search for bodies in the wreckage of an eight-story garment factory building that collapsed last month because no more are expected to be found, officials said Monday.

Also Monday, the government agreed to allow the country's garment workers to form trade unions without permission from factory owners as part of growing concessions for industry reform following the building collapse.

Soldiers and other workers have recovered 1,127 bodies from the April 24 collapse, with none found since Sunday night.
