Eight members of a family were killed when the vehicle they were travelling in was swept away by floods in Pakistan's Balochistan province on Saturday, police said.

"Those killed include three minor girls and three boys who were in the vehicle," said one of the senior officials.
The accident took place in the Jhao area of Awaran district which has received heavy rainfall since Friday.
