Malawi reeling as swathes submerged

More than 170 people have been killed and 200,000 displaced by torrential rain and flooding in Malawi.

Large areas in the south are underwater and homes, crops and livestock have been washed away.

The continuing rain is making rescue operations difficult.

David Campanale reports.
