Extra aid committed to Colombia as floods continue

Tens of thousands of homes destroyed, hundreds of thousands more damaged and no let up in sight. This is the scene in Colombia where the worst rains in 50 years continue to cause chaos across the country.

Between September 2010 and May 2011 Colombia has received more than five times the amount of rainfall it would usually expect. 12,000 homes have been destroyed, 356,000 have been damaged and an estimated 3 million people have been affected.
