Sep 3 - Hundreds of thousands of people are fleeing the flood
devastated areas of Bihar in India after losing their homes and loved
The floods were caused when the river Kosi deviated
its course in northern Bihar and it is expected to be a while before
things return to normal.
Officials say more than three million people have been
displaced and at least 90 killed by floods after the Bihar's 'river of
sorrow' burst a dam in Nepal, swamping hundreds of villages in the
state and destroying 100,000 hectares (250,000 acres) of farmland.
