Cyclone Idai: Road reopens, reaching Mozambique flood victims

Key road in Mozambique reopens, enabling aid to reach trapped people who’ve been surviving on airdrop provisions.

One week after Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique, workers have reopened a vital road, allowing aid agencies to deliver food and water to the suffering.

It’s the first relief they’ve had since airdrops delivered basic supplies that had long since run out.
