Giant machines at work on Monday evening to clear debris of the nine-storied Rana Plaza in Savar near Dhaka that collapsed last week, claiming over 381 lives.

With the latest recovery, nine bodies have so far been unearthed since the rescuers started using heavy machinery.
Savar police SI Saiful Islam said the bodies were recovered at around 9:30pm. He identified the deceased as ‘Hasina’ and ‘Ainul’ from identity cards found on them.
Apart from them, two other injured had also succumbed to their injuries in hospital on Monday taking the death toll to 388.
Hydraulic cranes and Bulldozers are being used to clear the wreckage on the back side of the collapsed building. Rescuers said they had seen several bodies there. Efforts are underway to recover them.
Meanwhile, thousands of people are waiting for their loved ones. They have staged agitation as they have not yet found the bodies even six days after the disaster.
Bangladesh Army, leading the rescue, said they were drilling cautiously to save anyone who might be still alive under the wreckage.
Bodies recovered from the site are being taken to local Adhar Chandra High School grounds where thousands had been staying overnight to claim the bodies of their loved ones to perform the last rites.
