(Reuters) - At least 10 people died on Monday morning after a tornado hit Ciudad Acuna, a Mexican city on the border with Texas, Mayor Evaristo Lenin Perez said.

The whirlwind damaged hundreds of concrete buildings, knocking down walls and ceilings, as well as wrecking vehicles in the city, Perez said.

"Most of the dead are people who were outside, not people who were inside their homes," he said.
