BEIJING- Heavy rain drenched a swathe of what had been drought-gripped southern and eastern China, killing 24 people and forcing more than 100,000 to evacuate, state media reported on Wednesday.

The deaths have been concentrated in the poor southern province of Guizhou, where 21 people have died so far, and 100,000 people have left their homes to escape the rising waters over the past few days, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Another 30 people were missing in Guizhou, the report added, suggesting the death toll could rise.
