MAPUTO - Tropical storm Dineo, which has been building along the east coast of southern Africa, made landfall in Mozambique on Wednesday evening, battering two coastal towns with heavy rain and wind at speeds of up to 160 km (100 miles) an hour.

In Inhambane, some 500 km north of the capital Maputo, television footage showed roofs blown off houses, electricity pylons uprooted and trees sprawled across the streets.

There were however no immediate reports of deaths or injuries. The government's emergency services had yet to give an update on the situation.
