Raging forest fires in central Portugal have killed almost 60 people.

Many of the victims were trapped in their cars as they tried to escape the blaze.

It happened in a mountainous region in the centre of the country around 150 kilometres northeast of Lisbon.

Hundreds of fire-fighters are battling the fires.

Portugese Prime Minister Antonio Costa says it's the biggest tragedy of human life Portugal has seen in years
