Heavy downpours in North Korea have left "hundreds" dead or missing and destroyed more than 30,000 homes, the country's state media reported Tuesday. The official Korean Central News Agency said preliminary information revealed the massive casualties after the storms that began last week, but gave no specific figures. It said the rain also flooded tens of thousands of hectares (acres) of farmland in the impoverished country that suffers from regular food shortages.
