AFP.- Las que golpearon Corea del Norte han dejado cientos de víctimas, entre muertos y desaparecidos, en lo que constituye uno de los “peores desastres” que afecta al país desde la Segunda Guerra Mundial, dijeron este miércoles medios estatales.

La agencia oficial Kcna no dio un balance pero la ONU estimó que 138 personas han muerto y que hay 400 desaparecidos por las lluvias torrenciales que devastaron la zona norte del país, en las riveras del río Tumen, ubicado en la frontera con China y Rusia.

Las lluvias arrasaron pueblos enteros, dejando miles de damnificados que necesitan comida y refugio.

“Las inundaciones por el tifón que golpeó la provincia de Hamgyong del Norte entre el 29 de agosto y el 2 de septiembre fue el peor desastre desde la liberación del mandato colonial japonés en 1945″, dijo Kcna.

Según las cifras de la agencia, las primeras entregadas por las autoridades de Corea del Norte, 68.900 personas quedaron damnificadas. La ONU, en tanto, estimó que 107.000 tuvieron que huir de sus hogares.

Además, esta catástrofe podría agravar la situación precaria de la alimentación en Corea del Norte porque 16.000 hectáreas de tierras agrícolas han sido inundadas, pocas semanas antes de la cosecha de maíz y arroz.

Rescue workers struggled to reach North Korea's flood-ravaged communities Tuesday as the Red Cross warned of a "major and complex diaster" which has killed scores and left tens of thousands in urgent need of help. At least 133 people have been killed and hundreds more are still missing after devastating floods hit the country's north, leaving tens of thousands homeless and destitute, with the risk of disease now looming.  / AFP PHOTO / UNICEF DPRK / Murat SAHIN /  - South Korea OUT / REPUBLIC OF KOREA OUT   ---EDITORS NOTE--- RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY CREDIT "AFP PHOTO/UNICEF DPRK/MURAT SAHIN" - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS THIS PICTURE WAS MADE AVAILABLE BY A THIRD PARTY.
