Laos Dam Collapse: 20 killed, 100 missing
Rescuers are racing to find survivors after a dam in Laos collapsed late on the day before (Monday), flooding several villages and killing at least 20 people.
At least 100 people are still missing, and thousands have lost their homes.
The authorities in Attapeu province have been using helicopters and boats to try to evacuate stranded villagers.
The dam that collapsed is part of the Xe-Pian Xe-Namnoy hydroelectric power project, which involves Laotian, Thai and South Korean firms.
Local authorities have appealed to government bodies and other communities to provide emergency aid such as clothing, food, drinking water and medicine.
