Madagascar flood victims struggle to pick up the pieces

Muddy currents have submerged parts of the town of Marovoay in northwestern Madagascar, flooding homes, swirling rubbish around tree tops and killing dozens.
A week of torrential rains have forced thousands to leave their homes, swept buildings away and cut off road links to the rest of the poor Indian Ocean island nation.

At least 32 people have drowned over the past week and 15,000 others displaced by the floods, local authorities said in their latest tally.
