Protests a year since factory collapse in Bangladesh

Watch this report from Bangladesh.

A year on from a huge factory collapse in Bangladesh thousands of people have gathered to protest.

The eight storey Rana Plaza clothing factory collapsed, more than a thousand people died and many more were injured.

The accident led to complaints about the poor safety standards workers were made to work in.

Safety inspections have been carried out at some factories in the country but not all of them and many people are still waiting for compensation.

Thousands of people are still very angry about what happened and want the owner of the factory to be punished more severely.

Some of the clothing companies which used the factory to make their clothes gave money to the victims but some people have criticised them for not giving enough.
