India floods: Rescue efforts hampered as landscape is destroyed

Rescue efforts in India are still being hampered by severe weather, a week after floods and landslides hit the state of Uttarakhand in northern India.

On Tuesday, eight people were killed when a rescue helicopter crashed near a pilgrimage site.

Roads have been washed away or badly damaged by landslides, while flood waters have transformed the landscape.
