Workers and army personnel work to clear the site and recover bodies from the rubble of a garment factory collapse May 6, 2013, in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh. The death toll from the collapse of the shoddily built building on April 24 continued its horrifying climb, reaching at least 630 on Monday with little sign of what the final toll will be.

Reuters reported on Saturday:
Bangladesh on Saturday urged the European Union not to take tough measures against its economically crucial textile industry in response to the collapse of a garment factory that killed more than 600 people.
Bodies were still being pulled from the ruins on Saturday as tearful families stood by waiting for news of victims of the country's worst industrial accident.
