Thousands of homes evacuated in Argentina floods


Two people have died and thousands of homes have been evacuated in Argentina after heavy rains flooded the province of Buenos Aires.

The town of San Antonio de Areco was particularly badly hit after the river Areco burst its banks.

Major roads have been affected by the floods, making it difficult for emergency services to reach victims.

Fiona Werge reports.
