Flash floods in Yemen have caused fatalities, destruction and trapped dozens of villagers at the start of the country's rainy season, officials say.
At least three people are confirmed to have drowned when floods swept through Mabar, south of the capital Sanaa.
One report says rescue workers were airlifting to safety about 100 people trapped inside their homes.
Some buildings were swept away and the main road linking Sana to the south of the country was cut.
Although most of the Arabian peninsula sees little rain, mountainous Yemen, at its southern tip, receives heavy rains in the spring and summer.
