Nearly one million people have now been affected by widespread flooding across Myanmar since June.

The government says up to 100 people have died and 1.2 million acres of rice fields have been destroyed.

Though schools in some areas have reopened, fresh warnings have been issued to people living in the Irrawaddy Delta region.

Myanmar always sees flooding in the monsoon season but this is some of the worst in decades.

The floods were made worse by Cyclone Komen, which ploughed through the country last week, causing extensive damage to the deprived Rakhine state.
