100,000 Thought to Be Dead in Burma

Ruins in Myanmar

The number 100,000 is now being heard about the deaths in Burma/Myanmar. Impossible to believe. Though at least their suffering is over. Drinkable water is hard to find. Food is disappearing fast. And the corrupt Generals who are called the government can not mobilize the response that is needed nor will they allow those competent to come in to help.

Relief workers and survivors described scenes of horror as people huddled on spits of dry ground surrounded by bodies and animal carcasses floating in the murky water or lodged in mangrove trees.
