Floods displace more than 180,000 people in Somalia

Severe floods have displaced up to 182,000 people in Somalia, the United Nations said on Monday.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a statement that rivers that had been flooded by heavy rains over the weeks had destroyed agricultural land and roads.

It is unclear how many victims have died from flash floods, a serious problem in Somalia.

In the central Somali province of Hiran, a boat carrying senior members of the regional magazine capsized, said Hussein Ismail, deputy governor of the province for social affairs.

Members of the council were on their way to visit a number of people affected by the floods.

Ismail said at least seven people died in the incident, while others were still missing.
