Indonesia flash floods, landslides kill at least 21

Flash floods and landslides triggered by torrential rains in Indonesia have killed at least 21 people. Eleven schoolchildren were among those who died and 15 people were missing. More than 500 homes in the provinces of North and West Sumatra have been flooded or damaged. Some were swept away by the floods, which also destroyed three suspension bridges. Evacuation is underway, but an official said access is difficult as the affected villages are in the mountains. In North Sumatra, 11 children studying at an Islamic village school died after their classroom wall collapsed when a nearby river overflowed. Rescuers are hunting for one student still missing from the 29 in the class at the time but have accounted for all the rest.
