Exactly one month ago Cyclone Nargis devastated Myanmar’s Irrawaddy delta region, leaving more than 130,000 people dead or missing. Now aid workers are fighting to prevent a second disaster caused by disease and malnutrition. Selina Downes reports from Bangkok.
Laputta – Cyclone Nagis (Think twice before watching)
Horrific images taken recently in Laputta, Delta Region of BURMA. The Junta banned journalists so the world wouldn’t see what is really happening. More smuggled footage soon.

Incredible video footage of Cyclone Nargis
May 27th, 2008
This is 53 minutes of unbelievable video footage taken and edited together by Burmese citizens. The first 6 and a half minutes was filmed during Cyclone Nargis, and the rest was filmed in the days following the cyclone. The areas in the video that have been completely destroyed are Laputta and Bokalay. The final 10 minutes are extremely upsetting, so be warned.
