SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) - Officials say there are still trapped victims alive in the rubble of a collapsed building in Bangladesh where more than 300 people have died.

The eight-story building housing garment factories collapsed two days ago after owners ignored an evacuation order issued because of major cracks in the structure.

Rescuers amputated one woman's hand to free her.
