TEHRAN – Floods caused by heavy rain killed 27 people in northeastern Iran on Sunday, state radio reported.

It quoted a local governor as saying the people were killed in the village of Galidagh in Golestan province, which borders Turkmenistan on the shores of the Caspian Sea.

He said rescue teams were searching for more missing people and appealed for aid to be sent to the region.

The floods also damaged houses and bridges and cut electricity to some 30 villages in the area.
