Mozambique Floods Displace 150,000

38 killed


A U.N. official in flood-hit Mozambique says at least $15 million in aid is needed to help after flood waters have killed 38 people and displaced hundreds of thousands.

The U.N. says more than 150,000 have been displaced by flooding in the southern African nation of Mozambique over the last several days. Marie Conselee Mukangendo, of the U.N. children's agency UNICEF, said Tuesday the overall death toll stands at 38.
