Tens of thousands of people have been left homeless in Bangladesh after fire tore through a slum in the capital of Dhaka.
About 15,000 homes were destroyed in the blaze, which hit the Mirpur area late on Friday and left 50,000 people homeless.


Between 2010 and 2016, poverty fell significantly in the country, specifically in rural areas where it dropped down to to 26.4%, Alhamdulillah! Urban poverty had decreased by over 2% as well; but on the other hand, almost 1 in 4 Bangladeshis are still living in extreme poverty.
