Image of Asia: Lifted to safety in flooded Kashmir

In this photo by Dar Yasin, an Indian tourist cries as she is airlifted into a chopper after being stranded in a hotel terrace by severe flooding in Indian-controlled Kashmir. The floods in northern India and Pakistan have put more than half a million people in peril and made thousands homeless. Military troops are installing temporary bridges and using boats and helicopters to drop food and evacuate victims.
