In pictures: Worsening flood conditions in northern Bangladesh

  • Published at 11:58 am July 28th, 2019

The recent looding in the northern part of the country, caused by seasonal monsoon rains, has had severe impact on residents of Kurigram, Gaibandha, and other districts in the area. Some have resorted to tearing down their homes and shifting them to damns via boat, while others are forced to take shelter on the boats themselves. The local government has already distributed some relief to those affected, but supplies are inadequate.
