Industry's Victims in Bangladesh        USA        August 16, 2013

 

International attention

has been focused

on workers' safety in Bangladesh

since the disaster at Rana Plaza,

a garment factory complex

which collapsed in April,

killing 1,132 workers.

 

As concern runs high

about the safety of garment workers,

Reuters photographer Andrew Biraj

spent time photographing survivors

of the Rana Plaza collapse

and also documenting the lives of workers

in other industries in Bangladesh,

where conditions can be hazardous.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot

about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife,

evacuations of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have one very basic question

that you can't easily find an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
