Pakistan: At least 17 killed in torrential rains, mudslides; homes destroyed

Several homes were destroyed and at least 17 people killed after torrential monsoon rains and mudslides hit areas in Northwestern Pakistan early Sunday.

The country’s disaster management authorities said they were dispatching relief aid to the affected area but mudslides in mountainous areas were delaying delivery. Efforts were underway to clear the roads.

Monsoon season lasts until mid-September in Pakistan and similar incidents are not uncommon.
