Dozens die in Pakistan flooding

Widespread flooding has killed at least 28 people in Pakistan after some rivers burst their banks during monsoon rains. Streets were washed away in the northwest of the country and a newly constructed part of a dam in the Charsadda district collapsed, officials said on Thursday. Al Jazeera’s Kamal Hyder, reporting from Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, said that an emergency situation was developing in the country.

“The rain is not stopping, many bridges have been washed away and there are reports that 100-year records are being broken.”
