UN appeals for extra $60 million to help Zimbabwe recover from cyclone disaster

The United Nations asked donors on Friday for an extra $60 million to help Zimbabwe recover from a cyclone that tore through eastern regions last month.

The storm flooded swathes of land, exacerbating a humanitarian crisis caused by an earlier drought. It killed at least 268 in the southern African country and hundreds more in neighbouring Mozambique and Malawi.
