China floods wash away buildings

China's state-owed news channel, CCTV, has reported that up to 11 people have been killed and two injured in flooding across China's southern provinces.

Heavy rains triggered landslides, destroyed roads and burst rivers banks. In Yunnan province, 882 people were moved from Yunnan's Mojiang County into temporary shelters.

CCTV showed video of an entire apartment building sliding down a mountain side and being thrown into a raging torrent.
