Wildfires kill at least 30 in Portugal and Spain

Posted

At least 30 people died in wildfires raging through parched farmlands and forests in Portugal and neighbouring Spain on Sunday and Monday, officials said. Authorities said they were still battling 145 blazes in Portugal - still recovering from its deadliest fire on record in June - and another 100 in Spain. Portugal's government asked for international help and declared a state of emergency in territory north of the Tagus river - about half of its landmass.
