SAD STORY! 134 People Perish in Bangladesh During Landslides....

At least 134 people have been killed through landslides following a heavy downpour  in southeastern Bangladesh, India.
According to AFP reports, the remote Rangamati region was the hardest hit by the pre-dawn landslides, with at least 98 deaths. 

Many of the victims in the hilly district lived in poor tribal communities, and were buried in their homes while sleeping. 

Rangamati district administrator Manzurul Mannan told the news agency that "the death toll might rise" and Bangladeshi officials confirm that at least 30 others were killed in Chittagong, while six died in nearby Bandarban district.

Emergency workers are still trying to reach some affected areas where phone and transport links have been disrupted.
