Turkish rescue workers race to save coach passengers caught in a flash flood.

One woman was killed in Gaziantep province late Wednesday when the bus was suddenly overrun by flood waters and dragged away.

Four people are still missing.

This flood victim described two of the missing as a teenage girl and an elderly woman.

The torrential rains at the heart of the flooding closed the highway for seven hours where the incident took place.

Heavy rainfall was also responsible for killing three people in north-Western Turkey earlier this week.
