86 fishermen missing, three bodies recovered from sea

Three bodies were recovered on Tuesday from the Bay of Bengal, where 86 fishermen remain missing after a cyclonic storm in Cox's Bazar, police said.

The storm also wrecked makeshift camps at Kutupalong, Balukhali and Ledha that housed Rohingya refugees, more than 350,000 of whom have fled from Myanmar. No one from the camps was reported missing.

The 86 fishermen went missing after the storm sank boats in the Bay of Bengal on Monday. Twenty-four fishermen were rescued.

At least 500 houses were washed away by the tidal surge at Kutubdia Island of Cox's Bazaar on Tuesday, and hundreds of trees were uprooted, according to Khondakar Mohammad Rezaul Karim, a senior government official of the area.
