MOORE, Okla. (AP) - The state medical examiner's office has revised the death toll from a tornado in an Oklahoma City suburb to 24 people, including seven children.

Spokeswoman Amy Elliot said Tuesday morning that she believes some victims were counted twice in the early chaos of the storm. Authorities said initially that as many as 51 people were dead, including 20 children. It was also reported that were at least 40 bodies left to count.

Teams are continuing to search the rubble in Moore, 10 miles south of Oklahoma City, after the Monday afternoon tornado.

BREAKING NEWS: Originally the death toll was reported to be 91 people and counting, however, the Medical Examiner's Office revised the death toll from the Oklahoma tornado to at least 24 people. The office said that amidst all the devastation, destruction and chaos there was some miscommunication and some of the bodies were counted more than once.

Americans might wonder how Pakistan could imprison a man who helped track down the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.
