Deadly landslide hits South Korean resort

A landslide at a South Korean mountain resort has left at least ten people dead.

Torrential rain has battered the town of Chuncheon, east of Seoul, destroying four buildings, including two small hotels during the middle of the night.

The wild weather has greatly hampered rescue efforts. With many buildings reduced to rubble, the search for missing people is continuing.

Over a 24 hour period, 400mm of rain fell on the capital, causing flash floods, further landslides and road closures and other transport delays. Meteorologists say the bad weather will continue until the weekend.
