India floods: Town buried in mud abandoned

Nearly 3,000 people are still stranded in India's Uttarakhand state where more than 800 people have died in floods and landslides.

Nearly 100,000 people have been evacuated so far, with the military continuing helicopter flights into the mountains to reach the last of the Hindu pilgrims and tourists who remain there.

Rivers swollen by monsoon rains have swept away houses, buildings and entire villages in the Himalayan state.
