Around 40 people Feared Trapped in Philippines Landslide

Around  40 people, mostly gold miners, are feared to have been trapped in a landslide in The Philippines – and seven bodies have already been dug out by rescuers, police reveals.

Police Superintendent Pelita Tacio said that part of a mountain slope collapsed on the miners’ bunkhouses in a far-flung village of Itogon town in Benguet province as Typhoon Mangkhut’s ferocious winds and rain pounded the gold-mining region on Saturday.

Mr Tacio, who was at the scene of the landslide, says rescuers found another man, but could not immediately retrieve his body  which was pinned by rocks and mud.
