High temperatures and dry weather are hampering efforts to extinguish a host of wildfires across Portugal. Some blazes have been brought under control, but a string of villages and the ancient city of Coimbra remain threatened by about a dozen fires. Villagers returning to their homes have described how fires tore through some 140,000 hectares and destroyed homes. A summer of drought has sparked fires across southern Europe, with Spain and France also fighting flames.(BBC news)

More than 70 wildfires have started across Greece over the last 24 hours - the worst blazes on the mainland since 2007, officials say. A number of homes have been destroyed and thousands of hectares of forest and farmland burnt. Fire fighting authorities have urged people to evacuate their homes, but many residents have stayed to defend them.
