Aid agencies have warned that North Korea is facing a humanitarian disaster after tens of thousands of people were displaced by flooding.

International Red Cross Committee (ICRC) says the government has reported 133 deaths with nearly 400 people missing and homes and crops destroyed.

"North Korea is on verge of a humanitarian disaster due to flooding", ICRC reported.

Rescue teams have been unable to reach some of the worst-hit areas.

North Korea already has chronic food shortages and is heavily dependent on foreign aid to feed its population.
