In the northern Pakistan provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, at least 92 people were killed in floods caused by heavy, pre-monsoon-season rains in early April, including at least 23 from a massive landslide that covered a village.

Flooding also washed away more than 1,000 houses and destroyed or damaged at least 70 shops in the regional capital of Peshawar. Roads also were damaged, including the Karakorum Highway, a link between China and Pakistan.
