Iran Condoles with Japan over Flood, Landslide Victims
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian foreign ministry extended the country's condolences to the Japanese nation and government over losing tens of citizens in the recent flooding and landslides.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi condoled with the Japanese people and the bereaved families of victims killed in the recent flood and landslide.

At least 70 people have died and many more are missing after heavy rains caused flooding and landslides across much of Western Japan.

Hiroshima Prefecture was hit the hardest with numerous landslides that killed at least 15 people and authorities have warned that the death toll will continue to rise.

Many of the dead had ignored evacuation orders, choosing to stay in their homes despite warnings.

Almost 5 million people have been told to evacuate as homes have been destroyed and cars swept away.

Since the downpour began on Thursday, the weather agency has forecast record amounts of rain through Sunday, warning of flooding, mudslides and lightning strikes.
