**SKorea Recalls Japan Ambassador over Visits to War Shrine**
South Korea has summoned Japan's ambassador in Seoul to protest recent visits by Japanese lawmakers and officials to a controversial shrine seen by many as a symbol of Tokyo's colonial past.
More than 160 lawmakers paid their respects at the Yasukuni Shrine on Wednesday. Three government ministers made a similar visit to the Shinto site in Tokyo last week.
The shrine honors 2.5 million of Japan's war dead, including some convicted war criminals from World War Two. South Korea and China, which bore the brunt of Japan's pre-war aggression, regularly protest such visits.
The South's Deputy Foreign Minister said Thursday that Japan's ambassador was recalled in protest about the visits and subsequent comments by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
**160 Killed in Bangladesh Building Collapse**
The death toll from the collapse of building that housed several garment factories in Bangladesh has jumped to 160 as emergency workers continue to search for survivors. About 1,000 people were injured in the accident.
Officials said Thursday that many people remain trapped under the ruins of the building in a suburb of Dhaka.
The building fell Wednesday. Survivors say the collapse happened within minutes.
Police officials say the factory owners appeared to have ignored a warning not to allow their workers into the building after inspectors discovered cracks in it on Tuesday.
Authorities say charges have been filed against the owner of the building and charges are also expected to be filed against the factory owners.
In November, a fire at a garment factory killed more than 100 workers, raising an outcry about the nation's garment industry.
