At least twenty people are missing after a landslide in northwestern Colombia, prompted by heavy rains, swept away a mountainside road.

The rescue operation will get fully underway again at first light.

Emergency workers say they do not yet know exactly how many people were caught up in the tragedy.

The victims were passengers on a bus caught in an earlier landslide 250 kilometres northwest of the capital, Bogota.

They were changing vehicles when the second slip swept them away.
