La Paz (dpa) - Flooding caused by
heavy rains in Bolivia has left at least nine people dead, officials said
on Wednesday. Four people drowned in the capital La Paz, authorities said,
and three other people were missing. A fisherman swept away by a rising
river in the southern province Tarijia was also missing and presumed dead.
Heavy rains Bolivia has been suffering from since December have harmed
agriculture and damaged infrastructure.
