Tornado kills two people in Turkey's Antalya

At least two people have been killed and 11 injured when a powerful tornado hit Turkey's Mediterranean province of Antalya, according to the provincial governor Munir Karaloglu.

"Eleven were injured, including one critically. A university student went missing in Kuzderesi in the Kemer district," TRT World cited Karaloglu as saying.

Karaloglu said the female student was said to have been in the car with her mother when the storm dragged the car into a stream.

Bayram Demir, 40, a municipality employee, was critically injured and later lost his life in hospital.

The powerful storm started Wednesday night, hitting Antalya's Kumluca, Kemer and Finike districts and damaging buildings, agricultural areas, and vehicles.
