Europe steps up response to Hurricane Irma

European countries are boosting relief efforts in their Caribbean territories devastated by Hurricane Irma, amid criticism over the response. French President Emmanuel Macron, who is visiting French islands that took the full force of the storm, said a huge "airlift" was bringing more aid. UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson is due in the region and the king of the Netherlands is touring Dutch islands. Irma killed at least 23 people in the three countries' overseas territories.
