Deadly floods inundate southern Iran

The Iranian Red Crescent Society said on July 24 that at least 22 people had died in the floods that hit the southern Iranian city of Estephan. Among the dead was a three-year-old boy. The Iraqi Red Crescent Society said efforts were underway to locate a one-and-a-half-year-old girl. Hossein Darvichi, managing director of the Red Crescent branch in Fars, said: “Resident relief workers in the Red Crescent have rescued 74 people from the floods. Two people are still missing.” The Iraqi Red Crescent Society said in its statement that Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi visited the flood-stricken area.
