The death toll in Nepal from floods and landslides has risen to at least 43 people, according to officials.

Twenty-four others disappeared after heavy rains caused floods and landslides across the country, officials said Sunday.

Torrential monsoon rains hit 30 of the country's 77 districts in the last week, including the capital Kathmandu, causing landslides and floods.

Police spokesman Ramesh Thapa confirmed that the death toll has risen to 43, with 20 wounded in the disaster.

More than 1100 people have been saved in different parts of the country over the past three days, Thapa added.

About 27,000 security forces have been deployed in areas affected by floods and landslides.

The largest river in Nepal, the Koshi, which flows into the northern Indian state of Bihar, had risen above the dangerous level, according to the division of the weather forecasts.

The monsoon in Nepal, which lasts from July to September, triggers disastrous landslides and floods every year, killing hundreds of people.
