¼ Million people stranded in Bangladesh as floods, deadly mudslides bury hundreds of villages
Flash floods and deadly mudslides have drowned hundreds of villages in low-lying areas of Bangladesh, including southeastern districts of Cox’ Bazar, Bandarban and Chittagong, destroying scores of homes and leaving about 250,000 people stranded since June 24.
At least two dozen people have lost their lives and many more are injured, according to reports.
The victims are facing food shortages as well as lack of safe drinking water, and are at the risk of being affected by water-borne diseases, according to the government’s Disaster Management Information Center (DMIC).
