In his Regina Coeli address Pope Francis prayed for the victims of the recent building collapse disaster in Bangladesh which killed scores of people and injured hundreds more and asked for dignity for the workers, report Vatican Radio.

He said, “I express my solidarity and deepest sympathy to the families who mourn their loved ones and from my heart I deliver a strong appeal that the dignity and safety of the worker will always be protected”.

More than 300 people died when a building housing at least five garment factories, some of them working for known western brands, collapsed last Wednesday. Widespread anger has been fuelled by revelations that factory bosses forced 3,000 workers to continue working despite police orders to evacuate the building because of cracks found in the structure the day before.
