Hello, I'm Neil Nunes with the BBC News.
Aid workers say flood waters caused by Cyclone Idai have completely submerged an area fifty kilometers wide in central Mozambique. The coastal city of Beira, home to half a million people, has been all but destroyed by the storm. A thousand people are feared dead, dozens have also been killed in neighbouring Malawi and Zimbabwe. Hingan Yorker is in the province of Manicaland.
The number of dead has increased hour by hour, so we're expecting that as the military repairs the roads and has access into some of the deepest affected areas, that the number will rise. We've seen pictures that are posted on social media, with some people remain trapped under these rock slides, marooned on these mountains and the extent to the devastation, many would admit it, including authorities, is still unknown to them.

The British Prime Minister Theresa May will chair a meeting of the cabinet later after her Brexit plan suffered a further setback. Officials said the decision of the Speaker of the House of Commons to block a possible vote on her deal with the EU made things significantly more complicated. Here is Alex Vosaliv.
It had been expected that Theresa May could try to get her Brexit deals through parliament for a third time as soon as today. Now that's off the table. Within government talks are underway about what to do next, the Children's minister Nadhim Zahawi suggested parliament could agree to set aside the speaker's ruling and go ahead with the third vote on the prime minister's Brexit deal. If not, officials have suggested the speaker's decision increases the chance of a long delay rather than a no-deal Brexit.
Rights campaigners have condemned the jailing of a prominent activist in the Russian Republic of Chechnya. Human Rights Watch described Oyub Titiev's conviction as a gross injustice. It said the ruling risks emboldening the Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyroven in his efforts to silence human rights abuses.
