Report:6 people killed in northern Turkey floods
Turkey's state-run news agency says six people, including four children, have drowned after torrential rains caused flash flooding in northern Turkey.
The Anadolu agency says Wednesday the downpours have caused a river to burst its banks late Tuesday, inundating homes and shops and stranding cars in the Black Sea port city of Samsun.
It says two brothers, aged 1 and 5, as well as a father and his two sons, aged 9 and 16, were drowned when the flood hit their homes. Authorities have also recovered the body of an unidentified woman elsewhere in the city.
In 2010, 12 people were killed in a major landslide and flood in the tea-growing Black Sea province of Rize.
