TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi offered condolences to families of the victims of the landslide in Bangladesh which left dozens killed and missing.
The death toll from seemingly unending floods in Bangladesh has risen to 134, with over a dozen people missing.
Days of heavy rains and landslides have also displaced thousands of people and damaged homes in the southeast of the country.
Officials say that the death toll will likely rise as downpours are expected to continue.
Emergency workers have been dispatched to remote parts of the affected area, where telephone and transport links have been cut.
