Eight dead, 30 missing in Colombian mudslide
Bogota (Colombia), Apr 14: Colombian rescue workers have found eight bodies and another 30 people were missing after a mudslide swept over a small town in the country's south, police said today.
Mud swept over the tiny town of Bendiciones in Valle province on Wednesday after heavy rains.
Rescue workers, using earth-moving equipment, have recovered six bodies and located another two, but a further 30 people were missing, police said.
About 50 people have been killed and thousands left homeless by flash floods and mudslides so far in Colombia's wet season, which weather forecasters say will last until June.
