Heavy rains have battered parts of South Africa, submerging whole neighbourhoods and flooding coal mines and power stations in a nation already hit by electricity blackouts.
At least 700 homes have been washed away near the capital, Pretoria.

The state-run power utility warned of further electricity cuts, saying heavy rains had affected its operations.

The cuts have halted gold and diamond production at some leading mines.
