INSPECTORS SUSPENDED: Bangladesh has suspended seven inspectors it accuses of negligence for renewing the licenses of garment factories in a building that collapsed in April, killing more than 1,100 people, a top Labor Ministry official said Monday.

NO VISITS: The official, Mikail Shipar, said a ministry investigation found that the inspectors never visited the five factories housed in the shabbily built eight-story Rana Plaza building. He said one of the factories, EtherTex, had been operating without any license from the factory inspection department since 2008.

THE COLLAPSE: At least 1,129 people died when the building in the Dhaka suburb of Savar collapsed April 24.
