Heavy rains have brought torrential floods and mudslides to parts of Peru and Chile - including the Atacama desert, one of the driest regions of the world.

Several people have been killed, and homes destroyed.

Thousands are without electricity and clean water and the clean-up operation is being hampered by the scale of the destruction.
