Mozambique, Zimbabwe cyclone deaths exceed 300 as UN boosts aid

BEIRA, Mozambique (AFP) – The death toll from a cyclone that smashed into Mozambique and Zimbabwe rose to more than 300 as rescuers raced against the clock to help survivors and the United Nations (UN) led the charge to provide aid. “We already have more than 200 dead, and nearly 350,000 people are at risk,” Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi announced on Tuesday, while the government in Zimbabwe said around 100 people had died but the toll could be three times that figure.
