Floods Bring Algerian Capital to a Standstill

A collapsed bridge in Algeirs City caused by days of torrential rain

DELLYS, Algeria, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Floods killed three people and swept away houses and vehicles in the Algerian coastal town of Dellys, 100 km (62 miles) east of the capital Algiers, residents said on Tuesday.

Dozens of people had been injured and many were missing after several days of heavy rain, they said.

"It is a catastrophe: Houses destroyed, vehicles lost, and people are running in the streets looking for relatives," said one resident, Mohamed Mouloudi.

"We need help. People are gathered now in the local stadium as well as in schools," he added.

The floods caked streets in mud, swept away parts of two bridges that lead to the town and damaged a hospital.
