Number of victims from storm Alex on the rise - The number of people killed in severe flooding in the Alpes Maritimes and northern Italy has risen to twelve with at least 20 people still missing.
A woman's body was recovered in the Mediterranean Sea by Italian rescuers on Monday. It comes after five men were found dead on Sunday in the border province of Imperia and two others, including a firefighter, were discovered lifeless on Saturday.
Three bodies were meanwhile found in south-eastern France on Monday. A day earlier, rescuers had found the body of a man whose car had been washed away in Saint-Martin-Vesubie, in the Alpes-Maritimes.
French authorities are trying to locate 20 people, including eight in Alpes-Maritimes. They include two firefighters whose vehicle fell into the water as the road collapsed.
