Burma Cyclone


Latest News: NYT reporter reaches Bogale township where 10,000 perished by karenzr

The unnamed New York Times reporter(s?) in Myanmar have been doing great work to report the suffering of the people in the Irrawaddy Delta region. The following line is from a report on Bogale – one of the hardest-hit areas – in today’s paper. 95 percent of the houses in Bogale are believed to have been destroyed in the cyclone.

<<This reporter, whose name is being withheld to avoid detection by the government, was able to reach some, but not all, of the worst-affected areas by hiding in the bottom of a boat.>>
