The death toll in flash floods that hit Spain's holiday island of Majorca rose to 12 on Thursday after the bodies of a man and a woman were discovered, "possibly" those of two missing Germans, police said.

 

A spokesman for the Guardia Civil police said the bodies were found near Arta, one of the affected towns. Emergency services tweeted they were discovered "close to the area where the car of the missing German couple had been found".
