ImageTEHRAN, Aug 7 (Reuters) – Heavy rain and flooding has killed three people and injured 80 in northwest Iran near the border with Turkey, the state broadcaster reported on Thursday.

The governor of Maku, identified only as Aseri, said the rain and flooding in his city had also destroyed buildings, the broadcaster's website said.

It said rescue workers were tending to the injured.

Parts of Iran are suffering a drought which has hurt harvests and led to a sharp drop in water behind dams, limiting hydro-electric production and leading to power cuts. (Reporting by Hossein Jaseb; writing by Edmund Blair; editing by Andrew Roche)
