Heavy rain and flooding in northern Italy has caused a landslide, leaving two people dead.
Two people were killed when the landslide hit a house in Cerro, near Lake Maggiore. The building is thought to have been partially buried by mud from a neighbouring hillside that became weakened following heavy rain.
According to local reports, one of the victims was pulled from the rubble alive but later died in hospital.
Torrential rain in northern Italy has caused flooding in the area which is already water-logged from previous flooding. The Liguria region has seen as much rain in 15 days as it usually gets in a year. This heavy downpour has saturated the terrain and caused rivers to overflow.
The recent events in Italy follow similar scenes in Switzerland where two people died after a residential building in Davesco-Soragno, near Lugano, was hit by a landslide.
