Floods and landslides
Floods and landslides triggered by heavy rains over three days have killed at least 43 people in Nepal. The country's police say 30 people are missing.

Reuters confirmed the information on Wednesday, October 20, quoting Nepal Police spokesman Basant Kumar.

A police spokesman said more than two dozen people had been injured in the natural disaster. They are being treated in different hospitals.

He said 60 people had been stranded for two days in the village of Seti, 350 km west of the capital Kathmandu, due to floods caused by rains in the mountainous country.

Basant Kumar said rescuers could not reach the village even yesterday due to bad weather and continuous rain. The rescue operation continues today.

Nepal's television has reported that cropland has been submerged or washed away. The floodwaters washed away bridges, roads, and houses.
