In pictures - Georgia: Flash floods in Tbilisi

Throughout the night of 13 June until the morning of 14 June, heavy rain in Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, caused the Mtkvari and Vere rivers to rise rapidly, bursting their banks and resulting in severe flooding throughout the city. At least 12 people have died due to the deluge, and 280 families have been rendered homeless.
