Myanmar: Cyclone death toll jumps by 5,000 to 28,458

Myanmar's state television says the death toll in last week's cyclone has jumped by about 5,000 to 28,458. It said Sunday that the number of missing now stands at 33,416. International aid groups, however, say the death toll could eventually top 100,000 as conditions worsen. Foreign aid workers have so far been largely barred from entering the country, and relief supplies are piling up in Yangon and outside Myanmar.
