DHAKA: Landslides triggered by heavy rain in southeast Bangladesh buried dozens of houses and killed at least 46 people on Tuesday, officials said.
The landslides hit villages in the Cox's Bazar hill and resort district, where officials said they recorded 25 cm of rainfall in 24 hours to 9 am on Tuesday.
"The death toll may go up as rescuers are still searching for bodies and people are likely to be still alive under the flattened houses," one senior official told foreign news agency.
