Floods and landslides kill hundreds in India

Thousands remain unaccounted for and many areas cut off after monsoon rains in the north.

    Floods and landslides caused by monsoon rains have killed about 800 people in northern India.

    Thousands remain unaccounted for and help still is not reaching the worst-hit areas as many of the roads in the region remain closed.

    There has been criticism that state institutions are doing little to ease the aftermath of the disaster.
