 A landslide caused by heavy rains buried shanty houses in a mining area on a southern Philippine island, killing at least 27 and leaving dozens of people missing, local disaster and security forces officials said Friday.
The landslide hit before dawn in Kingking village on the southern island of Mindanao, burying people under mud, rocks and rubble, said Liza Mazo, head of the regional disaster agency.
Six people were taken to hospital with minor injuries and rescuers were searching for others who may have been buried near an illegal small-scale mining area in the Compostela Valley.
