4 monate vor

Thousands of migrant workers and people from different regions in the tightly-packed nation of Bangladesh are rushing to find a ride to go home and celebrate Eid with their families. Thousands rushed to board ferries at the Mawa Ferry Ghat as train and most government bus services remained shut. The ferry service was also shut in line with COVID-19 restrictions imposed by Bangladesh government, which includes a ban on inter-district travel. But according to local news reports, the ferry service started on Tuesday due to huge crowd of passengers that gathered at the docks. (AP)
