Three killed in Spain flash floods

Cars washed away amid flooding in Aguilar de la Frontera, southern Spain

Three people have died in flash floods in southern Spain, the government has said.

The interior ministry said one man was found dead in a car that had been washed away in torrential overnight rain in the small town of Aguilar de la Frontera, close to southern city of Cordoba.

The ministry says the body of a woman who had also been in the vehicle was found nearby.

Another man was killed when an exterior wall of his house collapsed on top of him in the nearby town of Bujalance.

Television images showed damaged cars piled together along mud-packed streets in Aguilar while people mopped out their houses.

Cordoba is one of several southern provinces on alert for heavy rain.
