Falling tree kills 11 on Portuguese island of Madeira

A falling tree has killed at least 11 people and injured dozens more at religious ceremony on the Portuguese island of Madeira, says BBC.

A video shows the tree crashing down on a crowded square in a suburb of the main town, Funchal, scattering people who were out enjoying the religious festivities in the sunshine. 

Two children are among the dead, Portuguese broadcaster RTP reports.

The Lady of the Mount festival is the island's biggest.
