BARGUNA, Bangladesh - Four days after super cyclone Sidr killed more than 3,000 people in Bangladesh, rescuers struggled on Monday to reach isolated areas along the country's devastated coast to give aid to millions of survivors.
"The tragedy unfolds as we walk through one after another devastated village," said relief worker Mohammad Selim in Bagerhat, one of the worst-hit areas. "Often it looks like we are in a valley of death."
The confirmed death toll from the cyclone reached 3,113 Monday, while 3,322 are injured and 1,063 missing, Lieutenant-Colonel Main Ullah Chowdhury told reporters in Dhaka.
Ban Ki-moon said that the U.N. may donate several million dollars to Bangladesh. The Bangladesh government said it has allocated $5.2 million for rebuilding houses. The U.S. and other nations have pledged aid.
