Heavy rainfall has caused severe flooding across parts of Sudan, with authorities declaring a national state of emergency for 3 months.
At least 99 people have been killed, 46 injured and more than 100,000 homes have been affected as the River Nile burst its banks after record levels of rainfall.
The states of Khartoum, Blue Nile and River Nile are among the hardest-hit by the floods, while damage has also been reported in the Gezira, Gadarif, West Kordofan and South Darfur regions.
The UN has supported a national response, bringing supplies and emergency shelters to aid some 250,000 people that have been displaced.
