53 killed as heavy rains cause landslides in Bangladesh

Bangladesh

Dhaka: At least 53 people were killed due to heavy monsoon rains in southeast Bangladesh, most of them buried under landslides.

Police warned that the death toll would likely rise as emergency workers reached remote parts of the affected area, where telephone and transport links had been cut.

The recovery work is still going on.

Many of the victims were from tribal communities in the remote hill district of Rangamati, close to the Indian border, where 35 people were killed when mudslides buried their homes.
