Dozens killed in torrential Chinese floods

Floods and landslides in China caused by a week of heavy rain have killed at least 57 people and forced more than a million from their homes.

Officials said 12.3 million people were affected in Sichuan, Henan and Shaanxi provinces - in the south-west, centre and north of China.

The flooding in Sichuan was expected to be the worst since records began in 1847, Chinese media reported.
