India landslide death toll rises
At least 30 people killed and more than 150 feared trapped after landslide buried houses in Maharashtra state.
Heavy rain has hampered rescue efforts to dig through a remote village in western India where at least 30 people died as a landslide swept away scores of houses, possibly trapping many more people under debris, officials said.
They had already worked through the night using floodlights mounted on jeeps and earthmoving vehicles to pull eight injured people out of the mud and twisted wreckage, Vitthal Banot, a disaster management official, said on Thursday.
They were taken to a nearby government-run hospital, but their injuries were not life threatening.
