But the UN halted shipments the next day after the junta seized 38 tons of supplies, saying it planned to distribute them under its own efforts, the Associated Press reported.

Unofficial death is estimated more than 50000 and Corpses can be seen everywhere. Survivors cannot find food or water, local sources said that diarrhea has now affected a great number of people in the Irrawaddy Delta due to infection from corpses and dead fish. Source said that no aid from either the Burmese government or non-governmental organizations has been received in Laputta Township to date. The cyclone Nargis hit Laputta Township on May 2 at about 2 a.m. when most people were sleeping,high wind storm continued throughout the night.
