Tornadoes leave trail of wreckage in US

A series of tornadoes in the south and mid-western US have killed six people and injured several others.

Three residents of Cincinnati in Arkansas were killed by a twister early on Friday morning.

Tornadoes were later spotted near St Louis, Missouri and were blamed for the death of three people in the southern part of the state, authorities said.

One resident of Robertson, Missouri said his neighbour's house was destroyed.
