Millions Of People Have Been Displaced By Extreme Rain And Deadly Floods In South Asia

Hundreds have died as heavy flooding has spread across India, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

Millions of people have been displaced and hundreds have died as monsoon rains continue to cause severe flooding across South Asia.

In India at least 96 people have been killed in the floods, while about a million are taking shelter in government-run relief camps.

In Nepal 102 people have been reported dead due to the extreme flooding.

Fatal floods wreak havoc in Nepal:

The monsoon rains triggered floods and landslides in at least 43 districts of Nepal, a government minister said.

Last week, one of the suspension bridges in western Nepal collapsed during a raging flash flood.

The International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) estimated that at least 820,000 people have been affected by the flooding in Bangladesh.

Martin Faller, head of operations at the IFRC, said the floods were much worse than in previous years.

The monsoon has also impacted the region's wildlife. At least 20 endangered rhinos were killed after flooding swept through Kaziranga National Park in Assam, India.

In parts of India the flood waters have begun receding but other areas across South Asia still face extreme rain and rising flood waters.
