Deadly floods cause havoc in Bangladesh, northeast India

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Deadly floods cause havoc in Bangladesh, northeast India” – below is their description.

Days of heavy rainfall and flooding have left dozens dead and tens of thousands stranded in many parts of Bangladesh and neighbouring India.

In the northeastern Sylhet region of Bangladesh, floodwaters breached a major embankment, inundating dozens of villages and killing at least 10 people, local media reports said on Sunday.

More than 150 roads in the region were completely submerged, cutting off many areas and causing massive damage to the infrastructure, Bangladesh’s Daily Star newspaper reported.

Around half a million people remain trapped in low-lying rural areas despite waters receding.
