Sudan: Over a hundred killed by flash flooding 0

Flash flooding triggered by days of heavy torrential rainfall has claimed the lives of at least 100 people in Sudan over the past two weeks.

The Sudanese Red Crescent Society said on Sunday that at least 25 people died in the impoverished eastern state of Kassala, which borders Eritrea.

It confirmed that at least 100 people died nationwide and about 8,000 houses had been destroyed since heavy rains lashed several regions across the African country two weeks ago.
