Officials in Pakistan say 28 people have died in the aftermath of heavy rain storms over the past two days.

Health Minister Syed Sardar Ahmed says the majority of deaths took place in the port city of Karachi.

Ahmed says eight people died of electrocution and another 18 because of roof and wall collapses.

In Bangladesh, officials say drowning and disease killed at least 16 people Friday. Thousands more have been admitted to hospitals for severe diarrhea.

Nearly 2000 people have died in India, Bangladesh and Nepal since the monsoon rains began in mid-June, the vast majority in India.

Earlier this week, the United Nations warned of disease outbreaks in the region as rescue workers struggled to deliver food and water to an estimated 30 million people displaced by floods from the rain.
