Sri Lanka has called for international humanitarian assistance following floods and landslides triggered by torrential rains that have killed at least 122 people. At least 97 more are reported to be missing.

A number of flooded areas and places hit by mudslides have been completely cut off. Unconfirmed reports say an entire village may have been buried under a landslide in Diggana.
