Pakistani officials say flash floods overnight have killed 30 people in northern Pakistan, near the Afghan border.

Maghfirat Shah, the mayor of Chitral district, says heavy monsoon rains and flash floods overnight washed away a mosque and several houses in Arsun, an area of Chitral.

A spokesman for the disaster management authority, Yousuf Zia, says search crews have recovered the bodies of seven worshippers swept away when the mosque was struck by floods.

Chitral is in the far north of Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province.
