At least 48 people were killed Tuesday and several others were missing in rain-triggered landslides in Bangladesh, officials said. Heavy rains swept through Bangladesh’s two southeastern districts -- Cox’s Bazaar and Bandarban -- and triggered landslides, Xinhua reported. “Rescuers in my district have so far recovered 44 bodies,” said a senior police official of Cox’s Bazaar district, about 391 km away from here. At least 25-30 people including six army personnel of a military camp in the district remained missing, the report said. In Bandarban district, four members including two children of a family were killed in landslide, an official said. Landslides are frequent in Bangladesh’s hilly areas during the heavy monsoon that usually runs from June to September.
