SAVAR, Bangladesh -- Bangladesh's health minister says 70 people have been confirmed dead in the collapse of a building housing several garment factories near the capital.

Health Minister A.F.M. Ruhal Haque said that by Wednesday afternoon 70 bodies had been removed from the eight-story building. Rescuers said they had saved 600 other people from the rubble, but feared more remained inside.
