Seoul: Heavy rains in recent days have inundated rice fields in North Korea and flooded parts of a city near the border with South Korea.
Footage obtained Saturday by Associated Press Television News from North Korea`s state broadcaster showed flooded and damaged rice fields and people wading through water in the city of Kaesong.
Also visible in the footage shot Wednesday through Friday was damage to a country road, a collapsed bridge, a bus left stranded and tilted at a precarious angle, bent over rice shoots and crops washed over by earth and gravel.
North Korea`s state news agency reported Friday that the country is suffering "seriously" from flooding.
Dozens of people in South Korea died after torrential rains caused landslides and flooding.
