Evacuees fleeing rising floodwaters cling to treetops and wait to be plucked from the roofs of buildings in Srinagar, the main city on the Indian-administered side of Kashmir. Many won't have homes to return to, as days of flooding have washed away houses, bridges, communication equipment and crops in India and Pakistan.
The flooding began earlier this month in Kashmir, which is claimed by both countries. Hundreds have been killed and hundreds of thousands forced to evacuate in the region's worst flooding in years.
Here is a gallery of photos showing the devastation and the struggles of those affected by the disaster.
