More than 100 bodies of victims are yet to be identified, almost a year since Bangladesh's worst industrial disaster when a crumbling building housing five garments factories on the outskirts of the capital Dhaka collapsed killing 1,135.
So far, 207 out of 322 bodies of workers who perished on April 24 last year, have been identified local media reports said.
Seven more bodies of Rana Plaza victims have been recently identified by the National Forensic DNA Profiling Laboratory of Dhaka Medical College, the Daily Star reported.
