A NARROW ESCAPE... A bus teeters on the ramp of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport. The decrepit bus carrying 26 hajj pilgrims from a Mirpur hajj agency office malfunctioned and rolled backwards smashing through the railings around noon yesterday. All the pilgrims managed to exit safely. Later, they left for Saudi Arabia on time. Photo: Collected

Vehicles passing by an eroded portion of the approach road to Badaghat Bridge over the river Chengerkhal in Sylhet. As the road has been left unrepaired for the last two months, the bridge now also runs the risk of being damaged. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
