The worst cold wave in 30 years has killed 102 people in tropical Bangladesh, news reports said Thursday.

Temperatures plunged to 39 degrees this week in northern Bangladesh, killing people too poor to afford jackets or sweaters. It was the lowest temperature recorded in Bangladesh since 1964, when the temperature dropped to 38 degrees.
