2,200 Deaths and Counting in Wake of Cyclone in Bangladesh

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) _ International aid is pouring into
Bangladesh in the wake of a cyclone that has killed more than 2,200
people.

The government's Disaster Management Ministry says the casualty
count is likely to go up as recovery efforts continue.

Hundreds of thousands of survivors are stuck behind roads
blocked by fallen trees, sludge and iron roofs.

Aid organizations say food shortages and contaminated water
could become increasingly critical for people who are stranded.

An official in one Bangladesh city says rescuers are using boats
and bicycles to try to get food to people in outlying areas.
