Floods death toll rises to 267

Rescue and government officials said flooding killed at least 267 people in Pakistan over the past three days.

Most of the dead were in the northwest, which was hit especially hard by monsoon rains in recent days.

Mujahid Khan of the Edhi Foundation, a privately run emergency service, said at least 245 people died throughout the northwest. Many others were still missing today.

Sardar Attique Khan, the prime minister in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, said flooding there killed 22 people.

The UN said other parts of the country were also affected by the deluge.

Poor weather may have been a factor in a plane crash on Wednesday that killed all 152 people onboard in Islamabad.
