AL JAZEERA: Flood is getting worse


More than two million people have been affected by widespread flooding in Thailand, in what is the worst monsoon season in 50 years. The country is seeing its second month of flooding.

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes as swollen rivers and flood-control dykes burst.

There are now fears that flooding will spread to the capital, Bangkok.
