The death toll from landslides and floods caused by torrential rains in Nepal has risen to 22.
Nepalese officials said landslides triggered by monsoon rains buried several homes in Achham district, about 450 km west of the capital Kathmandu, leaving five people dead, 10 injured, and two missing.
Floods and landslides occur frequently in Nepal's mountainous terrain, especially during the annual monsoon rains between June and September.
At least 70 people have died in flash floods and landslides so far this year.
