 Death toll rises to more than 300 in Haiti

The death toll in Haiti as a result of hurricane Matthew – the most powerful Caribbean storm in a decade – has soared to more than 300,

Some 50 people were reported killed in the town of Roche-a-bateau alone.

The nearby city of Jeremie saw 80% of its buildings levelled. In Sud province 30,000 homes were destroyed.

Hurricane Matthew has pounded the Bahamas after slicing through Haiti and Cuba.

The storm passed directly through the Tiburon peninsula, driving the sea inland and flattening homes, with winds of up to 230 kilometre per hour  and torrential rain on Monday and Tuesday.
