Angola floods hit capital
The Angolan capital, Luanda, has been hit by a severe rainstorm that has left at least four people dead and brought parts of the city to a halt.

The Angolan news agency reported that one woman was electrocuted and two children were swept away by the floods.

Large pools of water are reported to have left people stranded, and in the area of the international airport the water level was said to be knee-high.
