Fatal floods batter India, Myanmar, Pakistan, Vietnam and Nepal


Parts of South East Asia have been battered by fatal floods.

The Indian state of Manipur has been under incessant monsoon rains for several weeks.

Indian media are reporting that a whole village, close to the border with Myanmar, has been buried under a landslip.

The torrential rains have damaged local infrastructure and washed away bridges and roads.

In Myanmar 27 people have been killed in four regions in the west of the country.

The regions have been declared disaster zones.

Aid agencies are growing concerned about the fate of the refugee camps housing thousands of displaced Rohingya Muslims.

It is reported that Rohingya Muslims are being turned away from shelters in Rakhine state.

It is feared that the heavy rains look set to continue over the coming weeks exacerbating the problems in both countries.

Many fatalities have also been registered in Pakistan, Vietnam and Nepal.
