PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Flooding in Cambodia has killed at least 45 people since last month, officials said Thursday.

About 11,500 families have also been forced from their homes by the flash floods along the Mekong River since July 30, the National Committee for Disaster Management said in a report.

The deaths and displacements were caused by heavy rains which have affected 12 provinces in the north and northeast.
