TORRENTIAL RAINS HAVE killed at least three people in southern Italy.

The rains have caused landslides in Sicily and also derailed a passenger train in Calabria.

A father and son, aged 50 and 25, were killed when a landslide collapsed houses in Saponara, near the city of Messina, according to the BBC.

A body of a 10-year-old boy has also been recovered, reports Reuters.

At least two people have been reported missing.

The Logano River has broken its banks, making local roads impassable.
