TEHRAN, October 12 - At least 10 people including two Britons were killed as heavy rain and flash floods hit the Spanish island of Mallorca, authorities said on Wednesday.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez visited the rescue coordination center, spoke to emergency workers, and offered condolences for the victims.

Residents swept water and mud out of houses as the floods subsided on Wednesday, leaving roadsides strewn with wrecked vehicles and beaches covered in debris.

The regional government called an emergency meeting, and authorities said 630 rescue workers and military units had been sent to the area to help.

Torrents of brown water swept cars along narrow streets in the eastern town of Sant Llorenc late on Tuesday. Rivers burst their banks, and swamped homes - forcing some people to take shelter in a sports center in the nearby town of Manacor.
