25 killed in Pakistan storms

At least 25 people have been killed due to stormy weather in Pakistan.

According to officials and rescue services a thunderstorm in Punjab resulted in the collapse of several buildings, leaving at least nine people dead.

In separate incidents related to a dust storm that hit Karachi, four people including two young girls died, an equal number of fishermen went missing and dozens of others suffered injuries.

Intermittent downpours in western, central and northern parts of the country for the past few days have rendered mud houses susceptible to collapse, while land sliding and flash floods in some areas have already made several roads dangerous for travel.
