Landslide kills 10 in northwest Pakistan

Written by: Staff

Islamabad, July 3: A landslide caused by torrential rain killed at least 10 people, including women and children, in northwest Pakistan, police said today.

It hit three houses in a mountain village late last night, and rescue workers struggled desperately to clear rubble without the aid of heavy machinery.

''We recovered 10 bodies but have no idea how many persons are still stranded there,'' said Shadawan Khan, a police officer in Kalam city, 210 km (130 miles) northwest of Islamabad.
