Thousands evacuated in China floods

Twelve people are known to have died after record-breaking rainfall flooded underground railway tunnels in China, leaving passengers trapped in rising waters.

Days of rain have caused widespread damage and led to 200,000 evacuations. China’s president Xi Jinping said on Wednesday that there had been «significant loss of life and damage to property».
