Monsoons wreak havoc in Kerala (Pics)

Weeks of monsoon rains in the southern Indian state of Kerala have triggered landslides and floods, leaving 324 people dead and thousands stranded.

About 22,000 people were rescued from the flood-hit Indian state of Kerala on Sunday, officials say, after monsoon rains finally eased.

More than 350 people have been killed, most of them in landslides, since the monsoon started in June.

Kerala's chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the number of people taking refuge in the 5,645 relief camps now stood at 725,000.

The following are few scenes in Kerala, as reported by foreign media.
