The death toll from massive flooding in the Sierra Leone capital of Freetown climbed to 312 on Monday afternoon, the local Red Cross told AFP.

Red Cross spokesman Patrick Massaquoi told AFP the toll could rise further as his team continued to survey disaster areas in Freetown, where heavy rains have caused homes to disappear under water and triggered a mudslide.
