The National Intelligence Service (NIS) said in a report to the National Assembly on Monday that the death toll from heavy rain and flooding in North Korea totaled around 900.

In addition the flooding destroyed 40,000 homes and left 24,000 families homeless, a lawmaker quoted the report as saying.

The report also noted that 105 kilometers of railways and 378 kilometers of roads were either inundated or washed away.

NGOs in Seoul have argued that the floods killed around 10,000 North Koreans.
