Dreams turn bitter for Bangladeshi garment workers

In this photo taken Tuesday, May 21, 2013, Hawa Begum holds a photograph of her two daughters outside the family home in Tekani village in far northwestern Bangladesh. She and her eldest daughter, 18-year-old Moushimi, were working inside the Tazreen garment factory near Dhaka when it caught fire last November. Hawa escaped by jumping out of a window on the fifth floor. Moushimi, trapped behind the factory’s locked gates, was killed along with 111 others. "I pray every day for my daughter and for Allah saving me," Hawa said. (AP Photo/Ismail Ferdous)
