Over 20 people dead as tornado hits Alabama

Rescue efforts have been paused overnight in the US state of Alabama after tornadoes killed at least 22 people on Sunday.

Local Sheriff Sheriff Jay Jones told the Associated Press the toll could rise, but rescue efforts had to stop until dawn due to the danger of searching in the dark.

Authorities say they are still working to identify the victims and the injured.

Family members reportedly said one of the victims was an eight year old in the town of Beauregard.
