Nearly five months after Bangladesh endured the deadliest incident in garment manufacturing history — with over 1,100 killed — the suffering for the victims, their relatives, and rescue workers continues. Families have received only a tiny fraction of their promised financial compensation. Activists are outraged at the lack of psychological and financial supports for the survivors and rescue workers.

Jason Motlagh joins host of HuffPost Live Ahmed Shihab-Eldin to discuss the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory and the problems the survivors now face. The interview with Jason begins at about the 12:40 mark.
