The authorities in Niger have ordered thousands of people to leave their homes in the capital, Niamey, because of serious flooding.

Many are sheltering in schools while others have nowhere to go.

Buildings have been destroyed and key roads cut in several parts of the country and livestock has been lost.

More than 40 people have been killed in flooding in Niger in the past three months.
