Dhaka building collapse: 'Large group' found alive

Bangladeshi rescue workers say a large group of people has been found alive inside a garment factory on the outskirts of the capital, Dhaka.

Rescuers had dug tunnels and located as many as 50 people trapped at various places on the third floor of the building, one report said.

A fire official told AFP he hoped to dig the survivors out by Saturday.
