Nigeria floods displace thousands

More than a dozen killed and hundreds of thousands displaced in heaviest rains in decades.

    The heaviest rain in decades have pounded Nigeria causing more than a dozen deaths and forcing hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.

    Many of the displaced are now sheltering in camps set up by rescue organisations as floods continue to sweep across the country.
