Third of Bangladesh underwater as monsoon drenches region

Almost four million people have been hit by monsoon floods in South Asia, officials said Tuesday, with a third of Bangladesh already underwater from some of the heaviest rains in a decade.

The monsoon — which usually falls from June to September — is crucial to the economy of the Indian sub-continent, but also causes widespread death and destruction across the region each year.
