Fears are growing that the humanitarian crisis in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi could further intensify, with torrential rains in the region expected to continue into Thursday, and flood waters set to rise.

As well as the immediate threat caused by flooding, hunger and illness are growing concerns, with crops destroyed and waterborne diseases likely to spread.

More than 1,000 people are feared to have been killed after Cyclone Idai hit the three countries last week.
