At least 14 people have been killed in severe storms in Argentina.

Most of the victims died in the province of Buenos Aires, where winds reached speeds of more than 100km an hour, toppling trees and causing roofs to cave in.

A teenager was electrocuted in the city of Santa Fe, in the north-east, when he stepped on a downed power cable.

Many neighbourhoods in the capital, Buenos Aires, were left without power as cables snapped in the strong winds.

Residents said unseasonably hot and humid weather gave way to the violent storm.
