Deadly floods in India and Pakistan
'Dozens dead' in Kashmir bus plunge
More than 200 people have been killed in flooding caused by heavy rain across large swathes of India and Pakistan, reports say.

At least 110 people were killed by downpours in Pakistani-administered Kashmir and Punjab, officials said.

About 100 people also died in Indian-administered Kashmir, as the floodwaters washed away houses and triggered landslides, officials said.

The region is suffering from its worst flooding in two decades.

On Thursday, a bus carrying about 50 members of a wedding party in Indian-administered Kashmir was swept into a gorge, killing dozens. The bride and groom were among those feared dead.

The full extent of the region's death toll is not clear.

On Saturday, Omar Abdullah, chief minister of the Indian-administered state of Jammu and Kashmir, told local media that "close to 100 lives" had been lost.

However, local media reported that up to 120 people in the state had been killed in the floods, including at least 14 killed by landslides.

Mr Abdullah said that the army had been requisitioned to help in rescue efforts.

"Now that the rain has eased, we hope that water levels will start going down," he said.

Houses levelled
More than 2,000 people have been marooned by the floods and required rescue in the past five days, the Times of India newspaper reported.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Kamal, a spokesman for Pakistan's National Disaster Management Authority, said that 100 people had died in Pakistani-administered Kashmir when the roofs of their homes collapsed.

Forty people were killed by the floods in Pakistan's Punjab province alone, Dawn newspaper reported.

Much of the city of Lahore was submerged by floods, with houses levelled by the rain, the newspaper added.

Pakistan regularly witnesses severe floods during monsoon season.

How did you do that wjk....I tried 3 times with the right link and the message came up page unavailable.

I was just about to post the sky link but will post it anyway because it is different pictures.

We are so lucky not to have these extremes of weather ...I will never moan if it rains again !!! Seriously though all these disasters happen in poor Countries You have to feel really sorry for these people who have so little to start with and Pakistan and India will not be able to supply cheap clothes to Britain for many months so have no source of income at all.
