Dozens buried in landslide in southern China


Between 30 and 40 people are reported buried in a landslide in China’s southwest Sichuan Province.

The landslide, triggered by torrential rain and floods, swept away houses and bridges in rural areas close to Dujiangyan city

Special working teams have been sent out by the government to help with rescue efforts.

Some areas have seen more than 500 millimetres of rain and, at the same time, over 48,000 people have been without water supplies for the past six days.

Chinese authorities have issued the highest level of rainstorm warnings for the region.
