Officials: Factories ignored evacuation order in Bangladesh

SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) - The death toll in the collapse of a factory building in Bangladesh continues to rise a day after the tragedy.

Officials say at least 194 people are confirmed dead.

Workers say before the collapse they could see deep cracks in the building's walls and police ordered the building evacuated, but officials say more than 2,000 people were made to keep working.
