A cyclone has slammed into the Bangladeshi coast as a million people hunkered down in evacuation shelters, including in a region of Myanmar torn by communal unrest. Four people died as Cyclone Mahasen hit Bangladesh's Patuakhali coast, officials said. Rain and strong winds lashed neighbouring Myanmar's northwest coast, home to tens of thousands of displaced Muslim Rohingya.
