Relief Underway in Cyclone-Ravaged Bangladesh

A huge relief operation is underway in Bangladesh for the victims of a massive cyclone that killed more than 3,000 people when it hit last week. At least 1,000 are still missing while a million more are homeless. Rescue workers have yet to reach a large part of the area along the Bay of Bengal where the storm struck.

Kate Conradt, who is the emergency response communications director for the aid group Save the Children, speaks with Renee Montagne.
