The toll from the worst floods to hit Vietnam's Mekong Delta in a decade has reached 24, most of them children, the government disaster authority said on Monday, as it reported a further six deaths.

The Hanoi-based national flood and storm control committee said that 21 of those killed have been children who drowned in floodwaters.

The flooding, which began in mid-September and is expected to last until late October, has so far inundated nearly 60,000 homes in the country and damaged more than 6,900 hectares (17,000 acres) of rice fields.

Vietnam is the world's number two rice exporter and the Mekong Delta in the south accounts for half the country's production.

Total losses are estimated at more than US$44 million, the committee added.

Unusually severe monsoon floods have killed more than 250 people in Thailand and about 170 in Cambodia, and deluged vast swathes of paddy fields in the region.
