The hydroelectric dam collapsed in Laos, south east Asia, last night, triggering flash floods in its southern Attapeu province.

“Several human lives have been claimed”, Laos News Agency reports – with “several hundreds of people missing”.

Officials have brought in boats to help evacuate panic-stricken residents in San Sai district as water levels rise dangerously high after the disaster.
