Flooding in Uganda has claimed at least 16 lives, the Red Cross says, as the region reels from weeks of rain.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Rescuers have been recovering the bodies of victims swept to their deaths by the flash floods in the western Bundibugyo area, the aid group said.

Homes have been washed away and a number of roads blocked or destroyed.

Large parts of east Africa have suffered floods and landslides in recent weeks. Hundreds have died and millions have been displaced.

The events have been linked to an unusual weather phenomenon in the Indian Ocean.
