Baby's body found in tornado rubble

The death toll from a tornado that ripped through the northern Mexico border city of Ciudad Acuna has risen to 14 after searchers found the body of a baby.

Searchers found the baby's body amid the rubble of shattered houses, Ciudad Acuna spokesman Edgar Gonzalez said.

The baby had been ripped by the force of the tornado from a baby carrier.

Mr Gonzalez said that four people from one family are still missing, a day after the twister injured about 300 people and destroyed or heavily damaged 200 homes.

The tornado tossed cars like matchsticks, leaving many leaning against the facades of houses.

Questions began to centre on the lack of any warning system, though tornadoes are infrequent in Mexico.
