    0

    KATHMANDU: Rescuers on Sunday ruled out finding any more survivors of a landslide in northeast Nepal that is feared to have buried dozens of people under tons of mud and rocks. Eight bodies have been pulled from the rubble after the landslide struck hamlets along a river in Sindhupalchok district before dawn on Saturday burying homes and leaving at least 100 people missing. “It has been over 24 hours that people would have been buried in mud. We have no hope of finding anyone alive,” government disaster management head Yadav Prasad Koirala told AFP in Kathmandu.
