Storms cause chaos in Mexico

Mexico's military has airlifted hundreds of tourists stranded by floods in Acapulco, while there are fears for people trapped in remote areas of the country.

The Mexican military has airlifted hundreds of tourists stranded in the flooded resort of Acapulco, after deadly storms hit eastern Tamaulipas state and western Guerrero state.

But thousands remain trapped in the city and elsewhere and there are fears the death toll may rise as rescue teams reach remote areas.

Tropical storms Ingrid and Manuel swamped large swathes of the country over the weekend, sparking landslides and causing rivers to overflow in several states.
