A rain-triggered landslide in southwest China's Guizhou Province buried five people on Tuesday, authorities said.
Days of heavy rain triggered the landslide in the early morning in Ertang Village of Zhijin County in the city of Bijie, said a spokesman with the county.
As of 10 a.m., one body had been found, he said.
Rescuers are searching for the other four, but continuous rain has hampered rescue efforts.
A rain-triggered landslide on Monday affected train services between Guizhou and Sichuan provinces. Four trains were canceled after a landslide hit the railway line section between the stations of Taibai and Mengdu in the city of Zunyi, with another 15 trains detoured, according to the railway bureau of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. --Xinhua
