Cyclone Mora has hit the south-eastern coast of Bangladesh, killing at least six people.

Most of them were killed by falling trees in the districts of Cox's Bazar and Rangamati.

Hundreds of houses were fully or partly damaged. Significant damage is reported in refugee camps housing Rohingya Muslims from neighbouring Myanmar.

The authorities have moved hundreds of thousands of people to shelters.

Meanwhile, foreign media has reported that the cyclone is now heading towards India.
