Germany floods: At least 100 dead and hundreds unaccounted for

At least 93 people have died and hundreds more are unaccounted for in Germany after some of the worst flooding in decades.

Record rainfall in north-western Europe caused rivers to burst their banks, devastating the region.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for a determined battle against climate change.

Belgium has also reported at least 12 dead, while the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland are also affected.

In Germany, the states of Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia were the worst-hit.
