ISLAMABAD (AP) — A senior Pakistani disaster management official says the death toll from heavy rains that caused flash floods and collapsed houses has risen to 80 over the past four days.

The deaths reported by Brig. Kamran Zia on Tuesday spanned the entire country. He says 12 were in the northwest's semiautonomous tribal region, 10 in neighboring Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and three in the Pakistan-held part of the disputed Kashmir region.

Zia, a member of the National Disaster Management Authority, said 15 people died in central Punjab province, 18 in southwestern Baluchistan, and 22 in southern Sindh.

Afghan relief official Mohammad Daim Kakar said late Monday that the same storm system hit the eastern part of Afghanistan, collapsing homes and killing at least 75 people since Saturday.
