Heavy rains take lives of 10

Heavy rains killed at least 10 people in Pakistan’s northwest, including six children who died when part of their mud house collapsed.

The rain has been pouring in the Swat valley area since Saturday evening.

Police officer Siraj Khan says officials recovered the bodies of six children ages 5 to 16 on Sunday from the remains of their crumbled mud house in the Madain area.

He also says two people in a car died when it skidded into gushing stream in Ghalegi area.

Another police officer, Muhammad Usman, says two shepherds died and two others were injured when lightning hit Sakhra forest near Matta.

The Swat valley was once a tourist destination that has recently been the site of extremism and intense militant activity.
