Hundreds missing after Sri Lanka mudslides

[ AFP ][ Oct 29 13:36 GMT ]

Mudslides triggered by monsoon rains swept through a tea-growing region of Sri Lanka on Wednesday, killing at least 16 people and leaving around 300 more missing, disaster officials have said. The landslides hit a tea plantation east of Colombo in the morning, with some homes buried in 9 metres (30ft) of mud, officials said. Soldiers were trying to dig through debris for survivors, but rescue efforts were hampered by damage to roads in the area which blocked earth-moving and other heavy equipment from arriving.
