CABLE CHAOS...

WHEN WILL THEY EVER LEARN...

With an auto-rickshaw approaching him, a man tries to get onto a moving bus right in the middle of Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue near Karwan Bazar in the capital yesterday afternoon. He was lucky this time but it can be fatal. Just a couple of weeks ago, a man died in the same area after he got off a bus in the middle of the road and was hit by another bus. Photo: Amran Hossain

Huge Health Threat...

Pedestrians cross a street, which almost disappears from view under clouds of dust, on DIT Road in Rampura yesterday.
