Cyclone Mora has hit Bangladesh, lashing the country's south-eastern coast with heavy rain and winds.

The powerful storm made landfall on Tuesday morning between the fishing port of Cox's Bazar and the city of Chittagong, with winds of up to 117 km/h (73mph), Bangladesh's Meteorological Department said.

Authorities have been moving more than one million people to shelters.

Parts of India and Myanmar are also expected to be affected.

It comes after heavy rains in Sri Lanka caused floods and landslides that killed at least 180 people.
