Many Missing In Bangladesh Storm

About 100 Bangladeshi fisherman are feared drowned after their boats sank during a storm in the Bay of Bengal. Seamen who managed to return to shore reported seeing at least 10 fishing trawlers flounder in the heavy seas. Authorities say they cannot mount a search operation until the high winds and waves in the area subside. ferry services have been halted and hundreds of people in coastal areas evacuated due to the weather.
