Day Two in the Search for Victims Buried in China Landslide

Rescuers dig through piles of rock and mud that crashed down over a southwestern Chinese village on Saturday as 93 people remain missing.

Police stand guard at an entrance to the road that leads to the village of Xinmo, in Maoxian county in China's Sichuan province, where a landslide buried the village and more than 100 of its residents on June 24, 2017.

The landslide came down just after dawn on Saturday, and rescuers have since been digging through the earth and rocks as experts say it's unlikely any victims will be found alive. So far, 10 bodies have been recovered with more than 90 still missing. The avalanche crushed 62 homes, according to authorities.
