Cyclone Yakecan batters Uruguay and Brazil

Uruguay has been hit by strong winds and high waves as a subtropical cyclone swept through the South American nation.

A 23-year-old man was killed when a tree fell on his house amid gusts of 98km/h (61mph) in the capital, Montevideo.

Seaside roads were covered in foam whipped up by the waves.

After battering Uruguay, Cyclone Yakecan moved north to Brazil, where it caused widespread power cuts.

Yakecan, meaning "heaven's sound" in the Guaraní language, triggered an orange alert - the second highest - in Uruguay.

Roofs were blown off and trees uprooted on the coast and also further inland.
