Villagers rescued from China floods

Two small children are pulled to safety as floods hit Shandong Province in eastern China on Friday. State television reports torrential rain left at least 10 villagers trapped by flood water being rescued by local authorities. Villagers whose homes are at risk of being washed away have been relocated, according to state media. The worst of the flooding has been in southwest China's Sichuan Province. Rivers have been reported at more than double their normal depth, reaching 11 metres in one place. The national meteorological centre predicts rain storms will continue to plague large parts of China for the next three days.
