Photo: Cyclone Death Toll Up to 3,100 in Bangladesh, May Rise



Cyclone-affected villagers grieve in Patargata, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Monday, November 19, 2007.

The cyclone that tore across the Bangladesh coast—"like hundreds of demons," according to one farm worker— killed more than 3,100 people, authorities said Monday, as survivors buried their loved ones and waited for aid to arrive.
