DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - The Bangladesh military says it is ending its search for survivors in the wreckage of an eight-story garment factory building that collapsed last month.
Brig. Gen. Mohammad Siddiqul Alam Shikder says the army will stop working to pull bodies from the rubble on Monday evening.
He said soldiers and other workers have recovered 1,127 bodies from the April 24 collapse and expect to find no more.
The collapse of the Rana Plaza building is the worst tragedy in the history of the global garment manufacturing industry.
