The severe floods which, have had destructive impact on at least nine villages in Hiran province, central Somalia, triggered crocodiles in Shabelle river to be swept into the flood-hit villages where seven persons have been eaten by crocodiles.
Reports from Buloburde in Hiran province indicate the latest floods in the area have isolated some 90 km of land where thousands families live, as Hassan Kaan, a resident has told Shabelle.
He said people were on trees and mountains where they suffer from diseases as malaria.
Residents also say they are threatened by crocodiles that already ate seven individuals in the floodwater, asking for an immediate help from international aid agencies and local businesspeople that are engaged in assisting flood victims.
Somalia has had no government since 1991 when warlords toppled former president Siad Barre.
