A sudden heavy rain and flash floods swept away houses and killed at least 112 people in Ladakh, Kashmir.

At least 400 people were injured.

There were mudslides too and some places looked like ‘a sea of mud’.

This disaster happened as Pakistan was hit by a terrible flood that killed more than 1500 people.
