Rescuers using earth-moving equipment and their bare hands dug
through heavy mud and debris Thursday
after a landslide engulfed an entire village in western India, killing
at least 30 people and leaving about 100 missing and feared dead.
More than 24 hours after the
Wednesday morning landslide, authorities said the chances of survival
were slim for anyone still trapped under the mud in Malin, a village of
some 700 people in Pune district of Maharashtra state. Suresh Jadhav, a
district official, said around 40 homes were wiped out.
