China flood chaos persists

Deadly floods sparked by torrential rains continue to devastate southern China.

    Torrential rains that hit southern China more than a week ago have triggered destructive floods and landslides that have killed at least 175 people.

    An estimated 10 million people have been affected by the disaster that has devastated the region and forced the evacuation of more than a million residents.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from the southern Chinese province of Fujian on how people are struggling to get basic aid and relief after rains destroyed key roads and bridges.
