KHARTOUM, Sudan (PANA) - Floods and torrential rains have killed 102 persons and rendered 8,000 homeless in southern Sudan, a government official said Wednesday.
The number of those killed, since the begining of the rainy season, is now 123 persons, with scores of thousands rendered homeless.

State minister of the federal government, John Dor Majok, said a committee he heads for the provision of food and assistance to the victims will send a delegation to southern Sudan next week to assess the damage.

"We will conduct an overall survey and send emergency relief assistance to the victims," he said.
