Rescue and relief teams are now reaching areas of Bangladesh devastated by a powerful cyclone. The Dhaka government has described the storm as a national calamity.
An estimated one million families are thought to have been affected. Survivors are now struggling to get basic necessities.
Though relief teams have now reached most of the remote communities in southern Bangladesh, delivering aid to many areas is extremely difficult and can only be done by boat.
The authorities confirm at least 2,300 deaths but fear the final toll could be significantly higher. People have begun burying the dead in the affected areas.
People have begun returning, only to find their homes devastated and relatives dead. A woman breaks down after finding the body of her mother.
They are confronted by scenes of destruction, like this cyclone-ravaged market in the Rupsha area.
Many carry their belongings in sacks. A government early-warning system is being credited with saving many lives.
Most, like this elderly man, returned to their devastated homes in a state of shock.
Some returnees are beginning to rebuild their lives already, like this woman drying clothes in her damaged home in Rupsha.
The resilience of the people is already evident as classes resume at this school. It will take a long time for life to get back to normal in affected areas.
