At least 11 people have died and two others missing in a flash flood triggered by heavy rain in northeastern Iran, the Red Crescent said on Saturday.
The rescue chief, Morteza Salimi, told ISNA news agency that “so far 11 people have died in this accident — eight of them in Khorasan Razavi, two in Golestan and another in North Khorasan”.
It was gathered that Friday’s storms caused flooding in five provinces and some villages have remained cut off.
The two people missing were reportedly part of a family of three whose car was washed away by the torrent in Golestan province.
One of them, a woman, has been found dead and the search is still ongoing for the other two.
