Angola floods kill 6

INTERNATIONAL NEWS - At least six people have died and hundreds of homes have been damaged amid heavy rains that have drenched Angola since the start of the week, local media reported Thursday.

In the capital Luanda, a four-year-old died when a wall collapsed, Tito Manuel of the civil protection told the state-run Angop agency.

Two of the city's main vehicle arteries were closed to cars due to landslides and mudflows.

A mother and infant were reportedly killed in the country's second city of Benguela, while there were three other fatalities in the south of the country.
