Landslide Buries about 20 in Northern China
The “massive landslide” hit in Zhongyang county in Shanxi province in the late morning, the state-run Xinhua news agency said.
The official, who declined to be identified, told Reuters that they were checking exactly how many people were missing, and that a rescue mission was underway.
He said they had no confirmed death reports yet.
In September of last year, a mudslide triggered by dammed up tailings from an iron ore mine killed over 250 people in the same province.
