Over 2,000 Killed in Bangladesh Cyclone

Cyclone Sidr, which ravaged Bangladesh Thursday, resulted in the deaths of over 2,000 people.

According to Reuters as printed in the New York Times, Bangladesh's disaster ministry registered 2,300 dead. The Red Crescent Society, however, thought the death count could reach up to 10,000, because of the many areas still inaccessible.

The BBC reported that vital food sources were also destroyed. International aid groups are scrambling to send help.

The BBC and Reuters had similar stories that were organized slightly differently. The Reuters story included information about the U.S.'s reaction since it is a national wire service.
