‘Heat apocalypse’: Europe in the grip of record-breaking heatwave

A heatwave broiling Europe has moved northward to the United Kingdom and fuelled ferocious wildfires in Spain and France, where more than a dozen local temperature records were broken.
Two people were killed in the blazes in Spain that its prime minister linked to global warming, saying on Monday, “climate change kills”.
That toll comes on top of the hundreds of heat-related deaths reported in the Iberian peninsula, as high temperatures have gripped the continent in recent days and triggered wildfires from Portugal to the Balkans. Some areas, including northern Italy, are also experiencing extended droughts.

Al Jazeera’s Zein Basravi reports from Zamora, one of Spain's worst affected regions.
