Flooding in Armenia

Torrential rains have caused flooding in Armenia in the country's worst flooding in decades.

The most affected areas have been the provinces of Lori and Tavush, where the rivers Debed, Aghstev and Tashir all burst their banks washing away roads, bridges, parts of a railway and flooding towns and villages located along them.

Three people have been confirmed dead, and many others have had to be evacuated from the affected areas.

Rescue efforts are ongoing along with emergency food and clean water deliveries.
