India began the mass cremation of bodies recovered after devastating floods in the country's northern Himalayan region. Hundreds of people are still missing. The floods, triggered by heavier than normal and early monsoon rains, have killed at least 822 people and displaced tens of thousands of inhabitants in Uttarakhand state, a popular destination for Hindu pilgrims due to its shrines and temples.
