Cyclone Idai sweeps across Zimbabwe, killing dozens

(CNN)At least 31 people have been killed and dozens are reported missing in parts of eastern Zimbabwe after a tropical cyclone ripped through the country.

“We have lost 31 Zimbabweans,” the Ministry of Information tweeted Twitter Saturday, adding that people have been “swept away” in the flooding that has claimed dozens of homes and caused huge infrastructure damage.
The country’s Civil Protection Unit is leading the rescue, with assistance from the Zimbabwe Red Cross and the International Organization for Migration, according to officials.
