At least 45 people have been killed and more than 225,000 people have been displaced by flooding caused by heavy rainfall in Niger.

Niger's western region has been badly hit after days of torrential rainfall caused the River Niger to burst its banks. The capital city of Niamey was brought to a standstill by the waters.

Local authorities reported almost 30,000 houses being affected with some 868 houses being swept away. A number of mosques and granaries have also been destroyed as well as many rice fields being submerged.

Much of Niger has been affected by rainfall since July, but the recent rainfall and water levels of the River Niger has surpassed previous records.
