At rubble, hope for survivors wanes in Bangladesh

Police interrogate building owner; protests continue

SAVAR, Bangladesh — A court on Monday gave police 15 days to interrogate the owner of a building that collapsed last week, killing at least 382 people, as rescuers used heavy machinery to cut through the destroyed structure after giving up hopes of finding more survivors.

Mohammed Sohel Rana, who was arrested Sunday as he tried to flee to India, will be held for questioning on charges of negligence, illegal construction, and forcing hesitant employees to work. His father, Abdul Khaleque, was also arrested on suspicion of helping Rana to force people to work in a dangerous building.
