    54,700 Killed In North Korean Floods

    An independent aid group says about 54,700 people have been left dead or missing and 2.5 million others are homeless after last month's devastating floods in North Korea.

    South Korean group Good Friends says the mid-July floods were the worst in North Korea's history.

    The figure is by far the highest given for the floods and landslides, which were said to have wiped out entire villages.

    Good Friends, a long-term aid partner for North Korea, said early this month 10,000 people were believed dead or missing.

    It says the new tally is an "approximate" figure based on final counts in late July, but it has not revealed its sources.

    Good Friends says 231 bridges were washed away, along with vast tracks of farmland.

    Immediate confirmation has not been possible.

    North Korea's state media reported last month that at least "hundreds" were dead or missing in the flooding.

    North Korea was lashed by a typhoon on July 10, followed by three days of heavy monsoon rains.
