Four people have been killed and another injured following a week of heavy rains in Honduras.

The country's Permanent Emergency Commission says three men died on Monday while trying to cross rain-swollen streams or rivers. And one teenage boy was killed and an 11-year-old injured when their house partially collapsed in the capital Tegucigalpa on Monday.

Honduras has been hit by heavy rains for about a week. Authorities say three people died in various parts of the country after being hit by lightning last week.
