IMF gives Mozambique $118 million for Cyclone Idai rebuilding

MAPUTO, April 19 (Reuters) – The International Monetary Fund will grant Mozambique a $118.2 million credit facility to help it rebuild infrastructure after a devastating cyclone that killed hundreds of people and flattened whole villages, the lender said on Friday.
