At least seven people have died after heavy rains in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa.
Rivers burst their banks in the capital causing flooding.
The city’s mayor, Adanech Abiebie, tweeted that the “damage to life and property was severe” in several areas in the city.
Dozens of people were injured and were being treated in different hospitals, according to local media.
The mayor expressed her grief for flood victims and said that the “city has learned the need to do more to minimise impact of heavy rain during rainy seasons”.
