JOWHAR - A suspected outbreak of cholera has killed up to 121 people in Somalia in the past week, hospital sources and local elders said yesterday.
Doctors said samples of watery diarrhoea stools taken from the victims had tested positive for cholera.
The worst affected region is the central Hiraan area, where at least 105 people have died.
In the neighbouring Middle Shabele region, 16 people are thought to have died from the disease. Both regions were hit by floods last year. - Reuters
