AP PHOTOS: Balkans hit with record flooding

Entire towns and villages in the Balkans have been laid to waste as the region struggles to deal with the worst flooding on record.

Floodwaters have triggered more than 3,000 landslides and forced tens of thousands of people from their homes. At least two dozen people have died, with more casualties expected. "The situation is catastrophic," said Bosnia's refugee minister, Adil Osmanovic.

Here are some photos of the devastation.
