    Photos: Many Dead, Scores Missing Hours After Landslide Buries Chinese Village

    More than 100 Chinese villagers are feared dead, 17 hours after a landslide buried their homes in southwest China as a day of searching by rescuers uncovered just six bodies.

    The landslide swept over more than 60 homes as dawn broke in Xinmo, a remote village in north Sichuan province.

    Rubble slid 800 metres (half a mile) down a steep slope to block a two-kilometre stretch of river and 1.6 kilometres of road, official state news agency Xinhua said.

    It said more than a thousand were involved in the rescue effort, including more than a hundred medical staff.

    But state broadcaster CCTV reported that by midday only three people had been pulled from the rubble: a couple and their two-month-old baby

    . Another child of the family remained buried.Some 112 were believed still missing in the latest count, according to Xinhua. Authorities had previously stated 141people could not be reached.
