Thousands flee Vietnam flooding as death toll rises

At least 15 people have been killed in flooding that has swamped parts of central Vietnam.

More than 34,000 people in the worst-hit provinces of Ha Tinh and Quang Binh have evacuated their homes after days of torrential rain.

Flash floods and landslides have also claimed at least 56 lives in Indonesia. Many more are injured or missing in the Teluk Wondama district of West Papua.
