Islamabad - At least 17 people were killed across Pakistan on Saturday after heavy monsoon rains caused flooding and roofs to collapse, officials said.

More than 11 died in northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and six in southern Baluchistan province, the disaster relief officials said.

The heavy rain and flooding also damaged hundreds of mud-houses in these provinces, they added.
