More than 200 confirmed dead after Cyclone Idai

Mozambique has begun three days of national mourning as the death toll following Cyclone Idai climbed above 200.

And with torrential rains expected to continue for days, causing floodwaters to rise still further, the need for help is urgent.

Hundreds of thousands of people remain at risk or are already waiting rescue from trees and rooftops.
