At least 20 people in Pakistan are dead and dozens more injured after violent rainstorms collapsed several homes, officials said on Saturday.
Heavy rains have whipped parts of the country near the Afghan border since Thursday.
Fourteen children and three women were killed in "rains" in the northwest province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, local aid officer Taimur Ali said.
The National Disaster Management Authority confirmed these deaths and added that three more people had died in the southwestern province of Baluchistan.
In the worst case, five children were killed when the roof of their house in the northern city of Dargai collapsed.
Rain also damaged another 51 houses and snowfall blocked several streets in Kashmir, which is administered by Pakistan.
Rough weather is expected in the coming days.
Many poorly built houses across the country – especially in rural areas – are at risk of collapse during the annual spring rain.
Heavy downpours, avalanches, floods and harsh winter weather killed more than 130 people in Pakistan and Afghanistan in January.
