More than a quarter of a million people in southern Bangladesh have received no assistance in rebuilding their homes a year after a cyclone killed 3,500 people, an aid group said November 12, 2008. The British-based charity Oxfam also said more than one million people were without proper shelter and were at greater risk of disease than before cyclone Sidr struck on November 15, 2007.
