At least 24 people have been killed after three days of heavy rain and storms in Pakistan, officials say.
Most of the deaths were in the north of the country, where roofs caved in and houses collapsed, killing several children. The death toll may rise to 30 if other reported deaths are confirmed.
Six members of one family are reported to have been swept away by floodwaters.
In places more rain fell in three days than would normally fall in the entire month of February.
Most of the deaths reported were in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Officials say more bad weather is expected in the middle of the month, but it is not likely to be as destructive as the storms this week.
