At least 43 people have been killed and several others remain missing after heavy rain and flash floods hit northern Pakistan close to the Afghan border.

Mosques, several houses and an army post in Ursoon village in the southwest of Chitral district in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province faced extensive damage after incessant rain caused flash floods early on Sunday.

Chitral is in the far north of Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan's Badakhshan province.

The Pakistan army has been taking part in rescue operations in the affected areas together with the district administration.
