“Hundreds of people including soldiers and police were struggling to stop a town being washed away by the choppy Jamuna river in Bangladesh over the last two days, officials said Saturday.

“Boulders, concrete blocks, brick slabs and sand bags were being dropped by volunteers, government staff and troops along a partially eroded river bank at Sirajganj district town 160 km (100 miles) northwest of the capital Dhaka.” Reuters reported.
