Flooding has killed 36 people in a region north of Sudan's capital Khartoum, official radio said on Sunday.

"Thirty-six people were killed in Nile state and 5,000 houses were destroyed because of heavy rain and floods," Radio Omdurman reported.

The brief report by SMS did not specify over what time period the fatalities occurred but heavy rains affected Khartoum and the surrounding region again on Friday, following earlier flooding which began on August 1.

Before the latest deluge this weekend, the United Nations said heavy rains and flash floods in Khartoum and other parts of Sudan had killed 11 people and affected almost 100,000 others this month.
