BANGLADESHI VILLAGERS RETRIEVE CORRUGATED IRON SHEETS AFTER THEIR HOMES WERE DAMAGED IN GAZIPUR.
Bangladeshi villagers retrieve damaged corrugated iron sheets after storms destroyed their homes at a village near Gazipur 60 km (37 miles) north of Dhaka on April 20, 2004. Strong winds and rain swept parts of Bangladesh, killing at least 17 people and injuring about 170 nearly a week after a fierce wind storm killed 66, police and officials said on Tuesday. The Monday night storm, packing winds of up to 150 kph (90 mph), hit four districts around the capital Dhaka as well as the Mymensing area in the north, already badly damaged by the deadly storm last week that also injured about 2,000 people.
