Bosnia and Serbia emergency after ‘worst ever’ floods
States of emergency have been declared in parts of Bosnia and Serbia after the heaviest rain and worst floods since records began 120 years ago.
Overflowing rivers have burst into towns and villages, cutting off whole communities, while landslides have buried houses.
At least three people have drowned.
Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said it was the “greatest flooding disaster ever”.
He said his government had appealed for help from the European Union, Russia and neighboring countries.
