Bogota: A landslide buried about 30 people
on a highway in north-western Colombia, authorities said,
adding it was unlikely there would be survivors found.
"It has been confirmed that about 30 people have been
buried in the rubble from this landslide (in Antioquia
department), which is quite large," John Rendon, Antioquia`s
disaster prevention chief told AFP.
A torrent of 100,000 cubic metres (3.5 million cubic
feet) of earth swept onto a highway in the town of Giraldo,
which leads to the city of Medellin, Rendon said.
