At least three people were killed and scores injured in Bangladesh today when a bridge packed with thousands of cyclone survivors collapsed, the AP reports. Another 20 people were missing. The collapse occurred as Bangladeshis moved toward a relief center to receive much-needed food and supplies in a district hard hit by last week's cyclone.
"We have walked for several kilometers to reach this riverbank to get some food because relief operators just distribute to the people on the banks and roadside," said one survivor, explaining the tense situation that led to the collapse. Having delivered 3,000 gallons of water, the US Navy prepared to start airlifting large food packages to remote areas as early as tomorrow.
