20 killed in Bangladesh landslides


At least 20 people were killed in landslides triggered due to heavy rain in Bangladesh, authorities said on Tuesday.
Influenced by a depression in the Bay of Bengal, rains have lashed three hill districts of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazaar and Bandarban since Monday, reports Xinhua news agency.
An official in Chittagong said: "The military, police and the fire service personnel have joined rescue efforts since early Tuesday morning."
Dhaka’s flood forecasting centre said the water-level in all the major rivers is rising, while some were already flowing over the danger mark.
