Hundreds of people were feared dead after a hillside collapsed burying more than 100 homes in Mexico today.
The landslide hit the town of Santa Maria de Tlahuitoltepec and local officials said rescuers were struggling to reach the area.
Oaxaca state governor Ulises Ruiz said the landslide followed days of rain in the Sierra Juarez region.
Rescuers were flying in from Mexico City and emergency personnel have been sent to the town about 50 miles east of Oaxaca city.
“There has been lots of rain, rivers have overflowed and we’re having a hard time reaching the area because there are landslides on the roads,” he said.
