The twin-engine aircraft that was carrying Bolivian president Evo Morales remains on the tarmac at Vienna Airport after it was forced to make a stopover in Austria.
A smiling President Morales was filmed walking into the airport where he greeted waiting reporters.
The cellar where an Austrian man held his daughter captive for 24 years is being filled with concrete to prevent it becoming a ghoulish tourist attraction.
Josef Fritzl was jailed for life in 2009 after he was found guilty of rape, incest and enslaving his daughter, as well the murder of one of the seven children he fathered with her.
Authorities in the small Austrian town of Amstetten had originally planned to demolish the building, but it is now going to be sold. There are reportedly already potential buyers.
The cellar has already been sealed, but will now be pumped full of concrete to ensure that it can never be accessed again.
This helicopter footage shows how far floodwater from the River Danube has engulfed the historic town of Melk in northern Austria.
The town's famous Benedictine abbey can be seen safely out of touch on its hill, but the old town all around is partly submerged.
Torrential rain has caused rivers to break their banks in central Europe leaving towns and cities under several feet of water.
Parts of the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Poland have reported serious flooding, with water levels reaching record highs.
The Czech government has drafted in 300 soldiers to help bolster flood defences after the river Vltava broke its banks.
Local media cited the head of Hungary's National Disaster Authority as saying that water levels in the Danube could exceed the height seen in the record flooding in 2002.
The town of Passau in southern Germany is seeing some of the worst flooding in 70 years.
The parents of Jemima Prees described how their daughter was "wise beyond her years" and a ray of sunshine in their lives
The Prees family were on the last ski run of the day in Innsbruck when Jemima careered into woodland and was knocked unconscious. Her father and her brother Barnaby both witnessed the accident on February 10.
Recalling the incident, Tim Prees described how Barnaby spent 40 minutes trying to revive his sister, despite the fact she was "fairly clearly dead". His actions drew praise from emergency services who arrived at the scene.
They allowed him to carry on, because they did say they couldn't have done any better.
The family of a British schoolgirl who died in a skiing accident in the Austrian Alps have spoken of how she "lived every day as if it might be her last".
Mourners will gather for the funeral today of 10-year-old Jemima Prees, who was killed when she hit a tree at high speed on February 10 while on a half-term holiday with her family.
In an interview with ITV, Karen Prees said: "She was lovely, she was gorgeous, she was very active. She loved life. She lived every day as if it might be her last.
"Sometimes she used to say 'today might be the last day, we must all tell each other that we love each other because we may not come back this evening'. She was very wise, wise beyond her years. She had things sewn up that some people never seem to grasp."
– FOREIGN OFFICE
We can confirm the death of a British national yesterday and we stand ready to provide consular assistance to the family at this time.
The father and brother of the British skiing victim attempted in vain to give her first aid after seeing the 10-year-old career over the edge of the piste and smash into a tree in woods at the Austrian resort.
Police said the girl was knocked unconscious and left very badly hurt after the accident, which happened on Sunday afternoon on the last run of the day at Mayrhofen.
Her mother had returned to the bottom of the mountain by cable car so was not there to witness the accident. A police spokesman said:
After the girl lost control, she began to gain speed. She went faster and faster and sped over the edge of the piste and into the woods. She then hit the tree and was very badly hurt. Her father and brother were behind and they went after her immediately and saw the accident. The family gave her first aid and called the emergency services.
