Cliff Tragedy - Albufeira

It is with great regret that I have to report that as a result of a cliff fall. at least 5 people have been killed today at the popular beach at Praia Maria Luísa in Albufeira.

According to local TV news and papers there were signs up warning people to keep clear of the area.

The President of Portugal, S.E. Dr. Anibal Cavaco Silva and the Portuguese Prime Minister, Eng. José Socrates both visit the area during the day.
