Fund Set Up For Victims Of Bangladesh Factory Collapse

Dec 25, 2013

The April collapse of the Rana Plaza factory building killed more than 1,100 workers and injured hundreds more.

To help them now, some major retailers and labor groups and the government in Bangladesh are helping to create an estimated $40 million fund to compensate the injured and the families of the victims.

The BBC’s Anbarasan Ethirajan, who covered the Rana Plaza collapse, joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss the fund.
