HAMILTON, Bermuda (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Leslie swirled over the Atlantic on a track likely to pass east of Bermuda on Sunday as the outer wind and rain bands approached the island, the U.S. National Hurricane Center reported on Saturday.

A wealthy British overseas territory and global reinsurance center, Bermuda is not expected to take a direct hit from Leslie, which could re-strengthen by late Sunday to a Category 1 hurricane, the lowest on the Saffir-Simpson scale of wind intensity.
