At least 24 people and a number of potentially dangerous animals are missing after severe flooding wrecked a zoo in Georgia's capital Tbilisi and left at least 12 people dead.
Zoo director Zurab Gurielidze said that none of the people who died were killed by animals that escaped their enclosures. Three zoo employees are known to have died.
Among zoo escapees were lions, tigers, bears, wolves and a hippopotamus.
Some of the animals, including the hippopotamus, were tranquilised and returned to the zoo. Others were shot by police, while some remain at large.
Mr Gurielidze added that it was still not possible to access the cages to assess the damage and count the animals on the loose.
