Bangladesh makes fresh aid plea

Bangladesh, India
Villagers remain in desperate need of vital supplies
Bangladesh has called for more aid for tens of thousands of Cyclone Sidr survivors, amid concerns that some remote areas have not yet been reached.

The country's army says it has yet to deliver aid to 30% of coastal villages hit five days ago by the storm.

There is anger among many villagers on the stricken south coast that they have still not received vital supplies like food, water, shelter and medicine.

The storm has affected 1m families and killed at least 3,100 people.

The death toll is expected to rise.

A statement from Bangladesh's foreign ministry said: "At this time we will welcome support from the international community. We are doing as best as we can do ourselves."
