Three die as Italy hit by torrential rain
At least three people, including a young boy, have been killed in southern Italy due to torrential rains.

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.
