On July 21, at least eight people, including two minors belonging to the same family, died while several others sustained injuries in rain-related incidents in different parts of the country, officials and rescuers reported. Intermittent monsoon showers continued to pummel Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, inundating the low-lying areas, damaging houses and causing road accidents. A light rain was also reported from Karachi and other parts of Sindh. Two children of a family died in their sleep, while three other children and the house-owner and his wife sustained multiple injuries after the roof of their house collapsed in Kamal Khel village of district Kohat due to heavy downpour in the city, the local police said.
