The death toll from floods in southern Somalia has risen to more than 1,000, the United Nations Department for Humanitarian Affairs (DHA) said. A DHA spokeswoman said the floods had also displaced more than 200,000 people. The death toll, based on figures from the UN humanitarian co-ordinator in Somalia, is double that released on Thursday by an aid agency, Care International.
