Dozens of people were killed in flooding triggered by monsoon rains in Kohistan, a remote area of Pakistan. Many are still missing.

An entire village was all but destroyed after days of heavy rain caused landslides and the nearby Kandi River burst its banks.

Military helicopters are in the area dropping much-needed aid and medical supplies, but this is not enough.

Al Jazeera's correspondent Imtiaz Tyab reports from Islamabad.
