In pictures: Dhaka collapse aftermath

Published
image captionMore survivors have been brought out of the collapsed eight-storey building near the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, with the rescue operation into its fourth day.
image captionThis picture by the BBC's Andrew North shows a section of the roof which has entombed so many inside. More than 300 people have died and an estimated 600 are still unaccounted for.
image captionAbout 3,000 people were in the building when it collapsed on Wednesday.
image captionAs the rescue operation continues, hundreds of relatives are at the site anxiously awaiting news of their loved ones. Most worked for garment factories based in the building.
image captionRescuers say many survivors are still trapped inside but as time goes on their cries become weaker. Rain on Saturday was hampering the operation.
image captionHundreds of volunteers are helping emergency services try to reach those still trapped in the Rana Plaza in the suburb of Savar.
image captionMore bodies are also being pulled from the rubble. They are taken to a makeshift morgue whey they are collected by distraught families.
image captionPrime Minister Sheikh Hasina has vowed that all those responsible for the disaster will be punished.
image captionViolent protests have erupted with garment workers demanding better working conditions and safety standards. Owners of two of the factories have been arrested along with two municipal engineers who are reported to have approved the building's safety.
