Already protesters are demanding punishment of the culprits and speedier rescue work. Fearing the situation might deteriorate, all garment factories in Savar and adjacent areas have been closed. Reports of cracks being noticed in other factory buildings are fueling more fear and anger among workers.
It remains unclear when the whole rescue operation will be called off. With so many missing people and challenges in the rescue efforts, hope appears to be the only thing keeping the whole operation afloat.
