24 Juin 2017

More than 100 people are feared buried after rain triggered a landslide in south-western China, state media reported on Saturday.

A report from the state news agency Xinhua said that "part of a mountain" in the Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of Aba had collapsed.

The landslide from a mountain fell onto the village of Xinmo at about 6 a.m., burying some 40 homes, the government of Mao county in Sichuan province said.

A rescue operation is underway, state broadcaster China Global Television News said, showing an image of two bulldozers beside rocks and rubble.

Over 100 people have been buried alive in a massive landslide in China. On January 22, 12 people in Hubei province were killed when 3,000 cubic metres of debris tumbled down a slope behind the three-storey hotel.

China has been experiencing weeks of heavy summer rains that often cause flooding and trigger landslides in rural and mountainous regions.
