Floods in China caused by seasonal torrents in mountain areas have killed at least 15 people.

The flooding hit Chongqing on Tuesday, with thousands in the southwestern mountainous region displaced and another four people reported missing on Wednesday.

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated, with more than 85,000 moved out of the province of Sichuan, the official Chinese Xinhua News Agency reported.
