    At least a dozen people have been killed after flash floods battered Nepal.

    Heavy rain caused torrents of muddy water to surge down mountains and swell rivers in the Helambu and Melamchi regions of the Sindhupalchok district, just a few kilometres east of the capital Kathmandu.

    The annual monsoon season is crucial to replenish water supplies across South Asia, but it also causes death and destruction.
