The nation will observe national mourning on Thursday following the tragic building collapse near Savar bus stand on the outskirt of the capital on Wednesday morning that left over a hundred people dead and many more injured.
“The nation will observe mourning on Thursday following the huge loss of lives in building collapse in Savar and national flags in all the government, semi-government and autonomous offices will fly at half-mast,” Cabinet Secretary M Musharraf Hossain Bhuiyan told UNB.
Besides, he said, special prayers would be offered in all the mosques and religious temples seeking divine blessings for the eternal peace of the departed souls.
The building, Rana Plaza, which housed two garment factories, collapsed all of a sudden after a big bang around 9.00am.
