More than one million people remain sheltered in temporary relief camps, officials say, as flood waters begin to recede.


People in India's flood-ravaged state of Kerala are facing a "great struggle to rebuild their lives", local officials have warned, as high waters that have killed hundreds of people and displaced more than a million others start to recede. 

Rescue teams searched throughout the southern state on Wednesday for survivors stranded during the area's worst flooding for a century.

Torrential monsoon rains from the end of May onwards have forced an estimated 1.2 million people to shelter inside makeshift relief camps, according to government figures.
