Flash flooding caused by torrential monsoon rains has killed at least 28 in Pakistan and affected hundreds of thousands of people, with further downpours expected in the coming days.

In Chitral in the northwest, roads, bridges and crops were badly damaged, with more than a quarter of a million affected.

Pakistan's poorest province, Baluchistan in the southwest, was also badly hit.

Heavy rains are expected over the weekend, which may cause more flash flooding and could trigger landslides in Khyber province, which includes Chitral.
