Local television footage showed buildings destroyed by the landslides, and rescue workers carrying away the body of one of the flood victims on a stretcher.

A three-year-old child was rescued alive, but several other people were thought to be trapped in the debris of collapsed homes.

The deaths come two weeks after at least 30 people were killed in flash floods in Istanbul and other parts of northwest Turkey, following the heaviest rains in the region in eight decades.
