Villagers pull submerged minibus from river as many died on their way to a wedding ceremony.
At least 20 people are known to have died as heavy rains caused rivers to burst their banks and triggered landslides.
Ugandan photographer Badru Katumba has captured some dramatic pictures of the aftermath of flooding in eastern Uganda.
In the picture above, taken in Namakwekwe, by the Nabuyonga river, a man can be seen swimming to try and retrieve bodies caught in a submerged minibus.
Ropes were attached to the vehicle and people started pulling.
The vehicle got to a point where people could reach inside.

Uganda’s Daily Monitor newspaper reports that those who died were on their way to a wedding ceremony.
Parts of eastern Uganda are prone to natural disasters and landslides and flooding, which claim lives and destroy livelihoods, happen almost every rain season.
