A newly-constructed dam collapsed during three days of flooding in Pakistan which left more than two hundred people dead, it has emerged.
Part of the dam, in the Charsadda district, gave way amid monsoon rains which led to the deaths of at least 267 people, according to rescue and government officials.
The north-west area was hit hardest by the rains, with reports claiming more than two hundred deaths - with many people still missing.
Mujahid Khan of the Edhi Foundation, a privately run emergency service, said at least 245 people died throughout the north-west.
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 hit by the rains.
People had to trudge through knee-deep water in some Swat Valley streets and crops were soaked in many areas.
Monsoon season often leads to widespread flooding in Pakistan, which has many low-lying villages.
It is thought that bad weather may have played a part in a plane crash on Wednesday in Islamabad which killed 152 people.
