Heavy rainfall during the annual monsoon has caused significant flooding in Bangladesh.
According to experts in the country, 4.8 million inhabitants have been affected by the rising water, and the violence of nature has already killed 41 people.
According to the flood control centre, the situation will worsen in the coming days, as water levels in major rivers around the capital Dhaka continue to rise.
Since the onset of rainfall in late June, about a million people have become trapped in their homes.
Among the 41 dead, 31 were children. Most drowned.
Observers fear that the floods will be the worst since 1988. In that year, Bangladesh was flooded for about two thirds for two months, and massive damage was done.
