Floodwaters are finally receding in parts of Bosnia and Serbia, after six days of the heaviest rainfall there in 120 years.

The deluge of rain caused rivers to flood banks and triggered hundreds of landslides. More than 40 people have been confirmed dead, and hundreds of thousands have been displaced.

Officials in Bosnia are saying the damage is worse and the recovery could cost more than the Bosnian War in the mid-1990s.
