MOZAMBIQUE: Garbage Pile Collapses Killing at Least 17

On 19 February, heavy rains in Maputo caused a 15-meter-high garbage pile to collapse, crushing several people and provisional homes in one of the poorest areas of the city. Rescue workers confirm 17 dead but continue to search for more bodies. Such slums are common in the Hulene district as poor residents settle next to dumps to collect food and items to sell.
