Cyclone Aila kills nearly 200 in Bangladesh, India By Anis Ahmed


DHAKA (Reuters) – Nearly 200 people have been killed by a cyclone that ripped through Bangladesh and eastern India, while millions remained marooned by floodwater or forced to live in shelters.

The death toll in Bangladesh rose to more than 130 following recovery of dozens of bodies Tuesday, newspapers and private television channels said, while Indian officials said at least 64 people had died in West Bengal state.

Cyclone Aila slammed into parts of coastal Bangladesh and eastern India Monday, triggering tidal surges and flooding that forced people from their homes.

BANGLADESH and India have launched major relief operations after a cyclone tore into the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, killing at least 116 people and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.

Many of the casualties in Bangladesh were reported to be children who drowned when Cyclone Aila triggered a 4m surge as it made landfall yesterday.

About 430,000 people were marooned, and military and civil defence teams were struggling to deliver food, water and emergency shelters, government officials in Dhaka said today.

Bangladesh’s disaster management minister Abdur Razzak said people on remote islands had been worst affected and could not be reached because of rough seas.

“Army helicopters are being deployed to carry food and other supplies until the seas calm,” he said. Read More from news.com.au.
