The death toll from Tropical Cyclone Idai in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi has increased to 430.
Idai hit Mozambique last Friday and then spread to neighbouring Zimbabwe and Malawi, triggering floods and landfalls and causing multiple casualties. Search and rescue operations continue.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has a different assessment of fatalities. The IOM said in a statement on Friday that the death toll in Mozambique stood at least 242 people, while the total known number of fatalities was 259 in Zimbabwe and 56 in Malawi.
