Congo railways underwater

Posted Jun 13 2009 12:32am

Brazzaville, Congo is having some railway problems, due to recent flooding.  This is a problem for those looking to use the railway, which links the city of Brazzaville with the Atlantic costal city of Pointe-Noire.  A major source of shipping and personal transportation, the tracks are known for flooding, yet repairs are not completed. Previous interruptions have led to shortages of food and fuel, for the city.
