Tientallen doden na aardverschuiving door hevige regen in Bangladesh


In Bangladesh zijn dinsdag zeker 43 mensen om het leven gekomen door aardverschuivingen als gevolg van hevige regenval.
Ook zijn er veel mensen gewond geraakt. Vermoedelijk loopt het dodental nog verder op.

De modderstroom die ontstond door de aanhoudende regen sleurde hele huisjes op heuvels bij de stad Dhaka met zich mee. In drie dorpen werden doden betreurd.

Reddingswerkers vrezen de komende dag nog meer lichamen te vinden. Bangladesh wordt elk jaar getroffen door hevige stormen, overstromingen en aardverschuivingen.

In 2007 kostte een soortgelijk voorval in de stad Chittagong meer dan 130 mensen het leven.

At least 68 people were killed in landslides that struck southeastern Bangladesh following heavy rainfall, officials said Tuesday.

The mudslides swept over thatched homes and settlements in three hilly districts Monday, and it wasn't immediately clear if anyone was still missing a day later.

Scores of people were injured and the death toll could rise, according to local reports. Police and soldiers were struggling to deliver aid to the most remote areas.

Military spokesman Rezaul Karim said several soldiers were killed while clearing debris and mud from a highway. Five injured soldiers were flown to a military hospital in Dhaka.

"Two officers and two soldiers have died, and two others remain missing in the incident," Karim said by telephone.

Rains that began early Monday had cleared by Tuesday, allowing rescuers to work faster in searching for survivors. But the firefighters, police and soldiers deployed to help were having trouble reaching some affected areas, said Reaz Ahmed, a senior disaster management official.

"The death toll could rise since many areas remain cut off," he said.

Bangladesh is in the middle of monsoon season but Monday's downpour was caused by a depression in the Bay of Bengal.

Officials said at least 35 were dead in Rangamati, one of the worst-hit districts, and 23 were killed in Chittagong. At least 10 others died in Bandarban, according to fire official Tarikul Islam.

Extensive devastation was reported in the region.

In Rangamati's remote Kawkhali area, one of the worst-hit, about 5,000 homes were either destroyed or damaged, police chief Addul Karim said. He said authorities opened six temporary shelters.

Bangladesh, a delta nation of 160 million people, is prone to natural disasters such as cyclones, floods and landslides. Many people in hilly regions ignore authorities' calls to avoid constructing homes on slopes.

Doden na aardverschuiving in Bangladesh opgelopen tot 147

Zeker 147 mensen zijn sinds dinsdag omgekomen na drie aardverschuivingen in Bangladesh. Volgens lokale autoriteiten is het onvermijdelijk dat het dodental in Bangladesh en buurland India stijgt.
Het land werd de afgelopen twee dagen geteisterd door flinke regenbuien. Nu er een einde is gekomen aan de regenval, zijn reddingswerkers in volle gang met de zoektocht naar overlevenden in zowel Bangladesh als het noordoosten van India.

De aardverschuivingen hebben vooral in Bangladesh levens opgeist. Het gaat onder meer om 98 mensen in Rangamati, 32 in Chittagong and zes in Bandarban. Onder de doden bevinden zich vier militairen die door een aardverschuiving vast kwamen te zitten. In India zijn zeker elf mensen omgekomen.

Bij soortgelijk voorval tien jaar geleden in Chittagong kwamen meer dan 130 mensen om het leven.
