Deadly flash floods hit Solomon Islands

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

The Matanikau and Lungga rivers burst their banks late on Thursday, washing away homes and bridges, and submerging large areas of the capital, Honiara.

The national disaster body said six people had died, but a government spokesman told ABC News that 16 bodies had been recovered.
