Date : 27th May 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



More than 200 people have now been killed by Cyclone Aila which hit Bangladesh and the eastern Indian state of West Bengal, relief officials say. They say that at least 500,000 people have been made homeless by the storm. The situation is particularly grim in the Sundarbans, the mangrove forest and home of rare Bengal tigers, where thousands are stranded by flood waters.
