Torrential overnight rains triggered a series of massive landslides on Tuesday in Rangamati and Cox’s Bazar, killing at least 12.

Eleven people were killed, several others were reported missing and many houses were damaged after the landslides hit five Rangamati villages in Naniarchar, reported Daily Star Bangladesh.

In another incident, a landslide buried a person alive in Cox Bazar’s Moheshkhali Upazila.
