  Original Published: 4/30/2013  Bangladesh has just announced it will inspect the safety of all garment factories, in the wake of a building collapse that killed at least 400 people.    Hope is fading that any more survivors will be freed from the rubble of a collapsed clothing factory.    In addition to those killed, hundreds more are still missing.   The Bangladeshi government says the building's construction was sub-standard, highlighting a growing problem for an economy that relies heavily on the garment industry.   The accident has also re-ignited the debate over the human cost of cheap clothes.
