Monsoon floods kill dozens
Dozens of people have been killed as monsoon floods rip through Nepal and north-eastern India.
At least 43 people have lost their lives in Nepal as torrential rains hit the region, police told the Press Trust of India news agency.
More than a million people have been affected by rising floodwaters as part of the seasonal monsoon.
Police have rescued more than 1,100 people from across Nepal, affecting some 10,385 households.
The Brahmaputra River, which flows through India, Bangladesh and China, has burst its banks, swamping more than 1,800 villages in India’s northeast Assam state.
“Ten people have died in separate incidents of drowning in the past three days and more than one million people (have been) affected, with the flood situation turning grave,” a state government flood bulletin said.
The monsoon season lasts from June to September and wreaks havoc across South Asia every year.
