Raw: Deadly Landslide in Southwest China
Landslide in China Kills At Least 14, 11 Missing – On Friday a landslide devastated a village in China, leaving 11 people missing and 22 injured. The death count currently stands at 14 people and is expected to grow.
The landslide immediately followed three consecutive days of rain, which caused the mountainside to collapse. In total 77 houses were buried or destroyed after the incident.
Rescuers have been searching for any people still trapped in the rubble using electronics and heavy duty equipment.
Some reports claim that unregulated mining is the cause of frequent landslides throughout southwestern China.
