Deadly floods across Niger have left 57 people dead and affected more than 130,000 since they began in June, according to the latest government toll, AFP has reported.

Extreme weather is common in Niger, one of the world's poorest countries, but the capital and even desert areas in the North were hit during this year's rainy season, which typically lasts three months.
