Cyclone Idai: Flying over flooded Mozambique – BBC News

Published

on



As Mozambique counts the cost of Cyclone Idai, the BBC’s Africa editor Fergal Keane joined a helicopter flight over some of the worst-affected areas.

The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. “We are 15 miles from the sea,” he said, “but it feels as if we are right over it.” He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared.

Charities say thousands of people are stranded by catastrophic flooding, clinging to roofs or stuck in trees.

About 300 people are confirmed dead in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, but the toll is expected to rise.

Published

on



A solitary killer whale, or orca, has been filmed hunting and killing a great white shark in an “astonishing” attack off the coast of South Africa.

Scientists said it was “unprecedented” and showed the exceptional predatory skills of killer whales.

Two orcas in particular off South Africa’s coast have been observed before working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great whites.

Dr Alison Towner, a marine biologist from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, led the study.

“This caught us off guard,” said shark biologist Dr Towner.
