Bangladesh's garment workers return to factories

Garment workers in Bangladesh have returned to work after protests and street battles which followed a proposed pay rise.

The European Union and the United states are the biggest markets for the country's garments, with exports worth about $12bn in 2009.

Companies such as Walmart, Tesco, Marks & Spencer and H&M have been attracted by the low cost base.
