Sharjah24 – AFP: The death toll from a violent storm which has wrought havoc on huge swathes of Spain's eastern and southern coastline rose to 10 on Thursday as rescuers searched for four missing people.
The latest deaths were in the northern Catalonia region, where the emergency services found the body of a man inside a vehicle in Cabaces, 60 kilometres (37 miles) northwest of the port city of Tarragona.

They had earlier found another man's body in a flooded river near Jorba, 70 kilometres northwest of Barcelona.

And late on Wednesday, they found a man who died after falling into the water in Palamos, a port town about 100 kilometres up the coast from Barcelona. They are also searching for another man missing from a merchant ship in the same area.
