Question of the Day
Ethiopia and Kenya also were affected, but aid agencies were able to work more easily there than in war-ravaged Somalia.
More than half of those who died are believed to have been children. The United Nations says 250,000 Somalis are still at risk of starvation and more than 13 million people need aid.
Islamic terrorists kill two in attack on outpost
MAIDUGURI — Nigeria’s military says gunmen from a radical Islamist sect attacked an army outpost in the country’s northeast, killing two people.
The attack Wednesday morning occurred near Maiduguri, the Borno state capital and the spiritual home for the terrorist sect known as Boko Haram. A witness said a soldier and a hospital worker died in the attack.
Col. Victor Ebhaleme confirmed the attack but declined to give more details.
These are just the latest killings blamed on the sect, which this year alone has been linked to at least 76 deaths.
The sect has been waging an increasingly bloody sectarian battle against Nigeria’s weak central government.
Floods leave 500 homeless near capital
MAPUTO — Nearly 500 people were flooded out of their homes in Mozambique’s capital after a tropical depression brought torrential rain and high winds, city officials said Wednesday.
The homeless in Mozambique were being sheltered in schools, churches and even on sports fields, city officials said. In the southern Inhambane province, officials said roofs were blown off 71 classrooms, seven teachers’ homes and two offices at a school.
In neighboring Gaza province, 40 small homes were swept away and 1,000 goats were killed.
Mozambique’s National Operational Emergency Center said tropical depression Dando dissipated after two days of destroying homes, downing power lines and causing other damage in Maputo and other southern areas. No deaths were reported.
