May 7 - Relief groups and governments urge Myanmar's rulers to let humanitarian assistance flow into the country following deadly cyclone.

Cyclone Nargis has killed around 22,500 people and thousands are still missing. Residents in Myanmar's main city of Yangon have been queuing for scarce clean water as disease, hunger and thirst pose a new threat to hundreds of thousands following the deadly storm.
