Death-trap...

Picture
Fishermen busy in spreading net, as if placing a garland of bright red beds over the vast sea, is a common feature at the off-shore island of Moheshkhali in Cox's Bazar. This mindless spreading of nets very often emerges as a death-trap when water transports are caught in them, resulting in accidents. PHOTO: Zobaer Hossain Sikder
