The river responsible for floods that displaced millions of people in India and Nepal five months ago has been diverted back to its original course. The Kosi river burst its man-made embankment in Nepal close to the Indian border in the middle of August and went massively off-course. Nearly 400 people died in the ensuing floods in India's eastern Bihar state and millions were affected. Tens of thousands of people in Nepal were left homeless in the floods. (BBC)
