Bangladesh Cyclone

PURBA SARALIA, Bangladesh (AP) _ Tensions are rising in
Bangladesh as relief centers struggle to help tens of thousands of
survivors of last week's cyclone.

Fist fights broke out at a food distribution center in one
village where thousands of people had gathered before dawn waiting

Nearly 2,000 people descended on another camp that had only

children in one hard-hit district have gotten sick and died.

The top U.N. official in Bangladesh says the health ministry has
medicine. The problem is getting it where it's needed
