Beneath a gray sky, rainwater had collected in a hole in the ground where Rana Plaza once stood, creating a small, murky pond. Rubble and pieces of rebar were strewn around the water's edge. It was hard to believe that an eight-story building with thousands of garment workers once stood in this small lot, steps away from a busy main road.
The non-descript place did not look like the site of the world's worst garment factory disaster. Two years ago on April 24, Rana Plaza collapsed, killing more than 1,100 people and injuring 2,500.
