Several countries in South Asia have been hit by floods caused by the annual monsoon season, which brings heavy rain from June to September.
Bangladesh, Nepal and the Indian states of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Assam have been severely affected.
In July, the monsoon also caused floods in the southwestern Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan.
Earlier this week, heavy rain brought Indian’s financial capital Mumbai to a halt, with flights cancelled, schools closed and roads unpassable.
