Floods claim over 120 lives in Europe


Rescuers were rushing on Friday to help people trapped in their homes in the town of Erftstadt, southwest of Cologne, in Germany. More than 120 people have died in devastatin­g floods across parts of western Germany and Belgium, officials said. More than 1,000 people were missing and communicat­ions in some areas were cut. Entire communitie­s lay in ruins after swollen rivers swept through towns and villages in the western German states of North Rhine-westphalia and Rhineland-palatinate, Belgium as well as the Netherland­s.
