The desperate wait
Outside the perimeter of the rescue area, family members wait, holding hands, mouthing silent prayers, holding pictures of missing relatives.
Gone are the wailing and crying that punctuated the air the first few days after the building crumbled.
As hope died, so did the tears.
Each time a body is pulled out -- dead or alive -- there's a desperate dart toward ambulances.
It ends in a wild cheer in some cases. But in most, heaves and sobs follow.
"The whole situation is so helpless," Khan said. "They don't know how to lift these slabs. They don't have the right equipment."
The unapproved plan
Disaster Management Minister Abul Hasan Mahmood Ali said Sunday the building was not built up to code.
It was erected on a wetland, and engineers used substandard materials for construction.
Furthermore, he said, the government never approved the plan.
The revelations are sure to fuel the outrage that's been burning for days in the country following the collapse.
But those at the scene say finger-pointing can come later.
There are people still in the rubble. It's been more than 100 hours.
And time is not on their side.
