UN says 2.5 million Burma cyclone victims at risk

. . . the UN is now warning that 2.5 million people are facing hunger and disease.
But instead of giving out aid, the government is dishing out eviction orders.
Hundreds of displaced villagers taking refuge at a sports hall in Yangon have been told they must go, an Al Jazeera correspondent on the ground reported.

Army officers told them they had 24 hours to leave, without explaining why or telling them where they could go.
