At least 11 hikers have been killed and others are missing after flash flooding in southern Italy, the BBC reports.

They were walking in a gorge in a national park in the Calabria region when they were hit by a torrent swollen by heavy rain.

Eighteen others were rescued, including a 10-year-old boy, the regional head of civil protection told Italian TV.

Six people have been taken to hospital. Local officials say the exact number of those unaccounted for is unclear.
