Deadly flash floods hit Solomon Islands' capital Honiara

Flash floods have killed at least 16 people and left some 10,000 homeless in the Solomon Islands' capital, Honiara.

Save the Children says 40 people are unaccounted for and staff have witnessed a child being swept away.

Days of rain caused rivers to burst their banks late on Thursday, washing away homes and bridges and submerging large areas of Honiara.

Nick Childs reports.
