Floods wreak havoc in Mauritius

A day of national mourning has been declared on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, where at least 11 people have died in severe floods.

Torrential rain hit the island's capital Port Louis on Saturday. The Mauritian weather service says isolated thunderstorms could cause further flooding in the days to come.
