With over 80 people dying in floods in northeastern India and 2.4 million people feeling the impact, more than 100 animals, including 11 one-horned rhinos also died at Kaziranga park in Assam state, officials said.

“At present, 80% of the park is underwater. The water had receded but today morning water level increased again,” said Shri P. Sivakumar, director of the national park that is also included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.
