Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered an inquiry into whether enough was done to prevent mass deaths in the southern flood-hit Krasnodar region.

Putin demanded to know how much warning people had been given about the impending disaster.

Activists blamed the ferocity of the flood on the opening of sluice gates at a local reservoir.

A separate criminal investigation is already under way into whether the 155 deaths were caused by negligence.
