People stand on a platform at the Xiaolangdi reservoir as water from the Yellow River is released for the second time since the end of June in central China’s Henan province. At least 295 people have been confirmed dead or missing after rainstorms and typhoon Soulik hit China, causing floods, landslides and buildings to collapse.
