Spain bakes under hot air: 2 die as plane goes down:


Southern Spain sweltered under intense heat for a second straight day on Sunday, when thermomete­rs were expected to reach well over 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) in large swathes of the European Union country.

A mass of hot air carrying dust and sand from Africa was forecast to push temperatur­es 5-to-10 degrees Celsius above average in many areas of the country.

The State Meteorolog­ical Agency issued warnings for extremely hot weather for most of southern and central Spain for the weekend.

Forecasts indicate 44 degrees Celsius (111 F) could potentiall­y be hit in several

points in southern Spain. Spain’s highest temperatur­e on record is 49 degrees Celsius (120 F). (AP)
