At least 23 people have been killed in flash floods caused by torrential rain in the Malian capital Bamako, a government official said today. Thousands were also made homeless as the Niger river burst its banks, destroying around 100 houses in several hours of heavy rain on Wednesday in the city of around two million people, said Alassane Bocoum, the national director of social development.
