Brazilian floods, mudslides: Death toll rises to 106, 10 still missing



 At least 106 people have died and 10 are still missing in Brazil, the government said on Tuesday, as heavy rains tore through urban towns in the northeastern part of the country for a sixth consecutive day.

The governor of the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Paulo Camara, in an interview with local media, said the government's priority was to find those still missing amid mudslides and major flooding.
Torrential rain triggered landslides and torrents of mud near the city of Recife in north-east Brazil.

Rescue workers continue the search for people still missing after poor neighbourhoods and shanty towns were swept away in the region.

President Jair Bolsonaro posted video on social media showing him in a helicopter flying over the area.
