Millions hit by South Asia floods
Worsening floods affecting eastern India, Bangladesh and Nepal have led to millions of people fleeing their homes.

About four million people have been affected in the Indian states of Bihar, West Bengal and Assam where at least 30 people are known to have died.

In Nepal more than 70 people have died in floods over the past two weeks.

Thousands of Bangladeshis are also affected, particularly in central areas near Dhaka where water in the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers is rising.
