Luxembourg prime minister promises aid for tornado victims

Luxembourg's prime minister promises financial aid will be available to help people who had homes damaged or destroyed by a rare tornado

The Friday tornado injured 19 people. Tageblatt says one of the two with serious injuries suffered a heart attack and was in critical condition.

Hundreds of firefighters, soldiers, police officers and volunteers cleaned up debris left behind.

Tageblatt says tornado-related damage has been reported at 314 buildings and around 80 homes are inhabitable.

Tornadoes are very unusual in Europe, where fierce gales that are more the norm also pose danger and cause damage.
