Hello Mr. Tahmid Munaz

Thanks for your posting on earthquake of Bangladesh. But the 5.6 is totally BOGUS information. Have you seen my Blog entry? which was 1st publication on a media of said Earthquake. See Earthquake Hits Bangladesh on 27 July 2008 at 00:56:09 Hour BDT . You will also see some Informative and funny links of posting. As you search Google News, you got the bdnews24 article first. If you did a 'Google Web Search' like: ( even more specific like (, you will see my link in 1st and top position about 12 hours!!! As I am not registered news media, Google news do not collect my RSS feed. My above article was in 1st place on Google web search since about 1:2AM.

Don't forget to look One more interesting blog entry Report of BDNews regarding this recent Earthquake (Mirror Version). How Bdnews24 confirm the value '5.6' where every Earthquake Monitoring Center is identifying it as '4.9?!

Have a nice day...
