Landslide In China, 4 Dead

Beijing: At least four persons, including an elderly woman, have been killed and another injured when a landslide buried two buildings in northwest China’s Gansu province.

The landslide which hit the area yesterday destroyed two low-rise residential houses in Wudu District, Longnan City, the district government said.

More than 200 rescuers pulled out five people from the debris of one building as the search efforts ended this yesterday.

A 75-year-old woman and a 44-year-old man died immediately. Two of the other three injured people were in a serious condition and died despite treatment.

Earlier thirteen people were killed and 29 others listed missing in heavy rain and landslides after Typhoon Megi devastated parts of China in the last few days.
