At least nine people have died in South Africa after they drowned during a flash flood.

The country’s emergency services spokesman, Robert Mulaudzi, said they were swept away during a baptism ceremony, adding that another eight people are still missing.

Mulaidzi revealed that the number is expected to rise as the search-and-rescue operation continues.

He noted that 33 worshippers had gathered along the banks of the river, and a sudden storm caused the flash flood and a strong current.
