DHAKA - A trial has resumed to determine responsibility for the Rana Plaza disaster in which 1,134 people died in April 2013 when an eight-storey building containing garment factories collapsed in Bangladesh's capital city of Dhaka.

Court officials have confirmed that the trial has resumed after more than five years of appeals and legal hold-ups since a total of 41 people were charged with murder including the building's owner, Sohel Rana, his parents and factory executives.

They were accused of signing off on building standards and forcing employees to work inside the building despite allegedly knowing that it was not structurally sound.
