Five dead, at least 30 trapped after landslide sweeps away bus and other vehicles in northern India
The Independent says at least five people have died and 30 people are feared trapped under debris after yet another landslide struck the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, sweeping away a tourist bus and several vehicles on a highway.
The massive landslide that damaged the Reckong Peo-Shimla highway in the state’s Kinnaur district on Wednesday has led to state authorities deploying around 300 troops of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), apart from disaster management units, at the accident site.
Ten people, including the driver and conductor of the bus, have been pulled out from a huge pile of mud and boulders.
