An all-enveloping dense fog in the chilly early hours on Sunday disrupted road and river communications across the country and forced flight operations at the Zia International Airport (ZIA) to be suspended for hours. Prime Minister Khaleda Zia’s trip to the Satkhira district had to be cancelled.
As the sun remained invisible until noon in most of the places, motor vehicles had to move with their fog lights on. Atleast 25 people are reported dead in the northern part of Bangladesh. The met office recorded the lowest temperature yesterday at 10.3 degrees Celsius in Jessore while it was 12.6 degrees in the capital.
