Bogota (dpa) - Days of rain caused flooding that has left thousands of people homeless in the poverty-stricken southern section of Bogota, news reports said Monday.

Boats were used to evacuate the residents from their homes, which have stood under water since Sunday.

The Tunjuelito river rose over its banks, flooding six city districts with water so high that residents could only climb trees and telephone poles to escape it.

Flooding and mudslides also hit other parts of Colombia, where the rainy season will last until the end of June.
