Floods continue to swamp many parts of central Malaysia on Friday, after deep waters caused by heavy rains displaced nearly 50,000 people and killed at least four people. Flooding hits the country's east coast during the rainy season annually and regularly results in mass evacuations, but people in some areas say this year's are the worst in decades.
After the rainy season and devastating floods, Ethiopia is facing an influx of desert locusts. Tens of thousands of people lost everything in the floods and the insects have destroyed many remaining crops. Meanwhile, war broke out earlier this month in the northern Tigray region between the army and Tigrayan forces. Local authorities are concerned that an already disastrous humanitarian crisis could get even worse. Our correspondent Maria Gerth-Niculescu reports.
