SRINAGAR, India (AP) - A crowded bus has been swept away by a flooded stream in the Indian-held portion of Kashmir and about 70 people are missing.

A state government official says rescuers are searching for the bus, but have not been able to locate it in the gushing waters.

The region is experiencing its worst flooding in 22 years, which has claimed at least 14 lives in the past two days.
