Rescuers are going all out in their search for some 107 people who were buried by a rainstorm-triggered landslide in southwest China's Guizhou province. But local rescue headquarters say the chances of survival are slim.
The landslide occurred at 2:30 p.m. Monday, in Dazhai Village, Gangwu Township of Guanling County. Rescue work had to be suspended later in the evening, due to the danger of further landslides. More than 600 soldiers and local residents took part in the perilous rescue operation, while others cleared the debris of the landslide which fell onto the roads leading into the village. The government has begun providing disaster relief, including drinking water, food and tents, to the remaining evacuees. A further 1,200 villagers in six communities of Dazhai are waiting to be evacuated.
