Flood­wa­ters swal­low pagoda

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Ris­ing flood­wa­ters have swal­lowed a Bud­dhist pagoda in cen­tral Myan­mar and sent tens of thou­sands flee­ing their homes, as the govern­ment warned of more heavy rains ahead. Dra­matic footage cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia showed the river­side pagoda sink­ing into the flood­wa­ters in Mag­way re­gion, with shocked by­s­tanders look­ing on as its golden spire col­lapsed be­neath the waves.
