Thousands of workers paraded through central Dhaka on May Day to demand
safety at work after the collapse of garment factory on April 24 -- the
country's worst industrial disaster. The collapse killed 402 people and
injured 2500.

A huge procession of workers on foot, lorry and motorcycle wound its way
through central Dhaka waving banners, beating drums and chanting "direct
action" and "death penalty" for the owner of the factory.
