Heavy rain has been battering Gulf states, causing flash floods that have killed 20 people and disrupting flights at the world’s second-busiest airport.

Dubai Airport said it was facing “very challenging conditions” on Wednesday. It advised passengers not to turn up as runways were inundated with water.

Further north, a man died when his car was caught in flash floods.

In Oman, rescuers found the body of a girl, bringing the death toll in the country to 19 since Sunday.

Authorities also warned that more thunderstorms, heavy rain and strong winds were forecast, with many low-lying areas still under water.

More than 1,400 people have been evacuated to shelters. Schools and government offices have been closed as a precaution.
