DAR ES SALAAM, April 13, 2014 (AFP) - At least 10 people have died in heavy floods in Tanzania's commercial capital of Dar es Salaam, officials said Sunday.
The city's regional commissioner, Said Mecky Sadick, said the toll may rise with roads damaged and several bridges swept away.
"The victims drowned in different parts of the city. The heavy rains and floods caused massive destruction of roads, bridges and drainage systems," he told AFP.
