Floods in Jammu and Kashmir

One hundred people have died in floods in this region which has had more than its fair share of trouble since the botched partition of the sub-continent. Photos shared on Facebook show devastation on a par with inundations in other parts of the world which have hit the headlines. In spite of the lack of publicity, I trust that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is working behind the scenes to offer what help the UK is able to provide.
