Balkans Flooding: Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia Deal With Deadly Floods;

At least 37 people have died and tens of thousands left homeless in the worst flooding to hit the Balkans since records began.

Three months worth of rain fell in three days last week in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia in a deluge described as catastrophic by government and emergency officials.

In Bosnia, a third of the country is under water, mostly in northern and eastern areas. A quarter of the four million population live in the affected areas.

At least 19 people have died in the flooding, which has also led to the displacement of landmines.

Heavy landslides have moved landmines and minefields from the 1992-95 war and warning signs at some nine thousands spots.

It is estimated that some 120,000 landmines remain in Bosnia. About 600 people have been killed by mines in the country since 1995.

Croatia is also fighting to cope with the effects the flooding, with two confirmed deaths and earth walls being built along the Sava and Danube rivers.

In Serbia, 12 bodies were recovered in the flooded town of Obrenovac, about 20 miles South-west of the capital, Belgrade.

The countries stand along the Sava river. Its swollen tributaries made bridges disappear in minutes, while roads and railways were cut within hours. The tops of traffic signs were just visible yesterday under three or four metres of water.
