Rain kills 3 in Bangladesh

Police say a woman and her two young children have died after their mud-and-thatched hut collapsed in heavy rains in Bangladesh's southeast.
Local police official Utpal Barua said the woman's husband and another child were injured in the collapse early Thursday. The deaths occurred in Chittagong district, 135 miles (216 kilometers) southeast of capital Dhaka.
Heavy rains, spawned by a depression in the Bay of Bengal, have flooded many villages in the region, the official said.
Monsoon floods are common in this tropical South Asian nation.
