Race to find dozens trapped in southwest China landslide

Rescuers have been racing to find dozens of people trapped after a landslide struck a remote and mountainous part of southwestern China, killing at least 12. The predawn landslide buried 18 homes when it hit Zhenxiong county, in Yunnan province, on Monday. More than 24 hours after the disaster, state news agency Xinhua reported that rescue workers were in a “race against time” on Tuesday to find those still missing, after a night of subzero temperatures. Yunnan is among several provinces in China currently experiencing bitterly cold temperatures, according to the National Meteorological Centrehttps://www.aljazeera.com/gallery/2024/1/23/race-to-find-dozens-trapped-in-southwest-china-landslide
