Fears Solomon Islands death toll could rise

There are concerns over an outbreak of disease following floods that have left at least 21 people dead.

The government in the Solomon Islands has reported that at least 21 people died in the flash floods last week.

Since the rain has stopped, aid has been delivered to those most in need.

But there are concerns that the number could rise, and there are fears that diseases could spread among those crammed into evacuation camps.
