At least 32 people were killed in a storm which hit the eastern Indian state of Bihar today.

Fierce winds uprooted trees and electric poles and caused widespread damage in three districts.

Five other districts near the Kosi river were also affected.

Reports said several dozen people were injured and the toll was expected to increase.

In the past few years, areas along the Kosi river have suffered severe flooding, and scores of people have died.
