Sardinia hit by deadly Cyclone Cleopatra and floods
At least 18 people have been killed in flooding on the Italian island of Sardinia after a cyclone and heavy rain.

A number of people are reported missing after rivers burst their banks. Cars were swept away and bridges collapsed.

The area around the north-eastern city of Olbia was worst-hit - in some places the water was up to 3m (10ft) deep.

The unstable conditions are expected move across Italy and further east, bringing further downpours and the threat of flooding, particularly in Venice.

The storm caused extensive damage to farms in Sardinia and disrupted a number of flights to and from mainland Italy.

Italian President Giorgio Napolitano has expressed "solidarity with the communities involved" and "heartfelt sympathy to the families of the many victims".
