Brazil's Minas Gerais hit by deadly floods

Help

At least six people have been killed and tens of thousands have been forced from their homes by floods and landslides in south-eastern Brazil.

Some 3,000 homes have been destroyed and a total of 66 towns and cities in Minas Gerais state have declared a state of emergency after heavy rains.

Many roads have been blocked, making it difficult to get help and supplies to affected areas.
