Congo flooding

Heavy flooding has killed 24 people and displaced tens of thousands in the Democratic Republic of Congo, an official said on Saturday.

A further 45 people were injured, said Theo Kasi, governor of the South Kivu province.

About 3,500 houses were destroyed, and 77,790 people displaced, he said after an assessment of the damage.

Water levels in Lake Tanganyika and in the Mulongwe river — located in the south-east of the central African country — rose following heavy rain.

Among the roads flooded was National Road number 5, a key highway.
