Georgia flood: Volunteers search for animals at Tbilisi zoo

A flash flood in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi has killed at least 13 people, with up to 20 still missing according to officials.

Heavy rains caused the river Vere to burst its banks and flood the city.

Floodwaters hit the zoo, killing many animals as well as three people who worked there.

Some animals escaped in the aftermath and are still missing.

Rayhan Demytrie reports from the zoo as volunteers dig through the mud.
