Rescue workers in Bangladesh say they may have found a survivor buried amid the wreckage of a garment factory building that collapsed 17 days ago.
Workers at the site had been clearing the rubble since the collapse om April 24. More than 2,500 people were rescued in the immediate aftermath of the disaster.
Army officials ordered workers to stop clearing the site today as they tried to free a person they said might still be alive.
A soldier at the scene said rescuers found a woman in the debris and she waved her hand.
Rescuers used a handsaw, welding and drilling equipment to try to cut through iron rods and debris to free her. They asked for a small oxygen cylinder to be brought to the site.
No survivors had been found in the wreckage since the days after the collapse.
