TOKYO: Huge landslides in western Japan killed at least 32 people and left another nine missing on Wednesday, authorities said, after waves of mud engulfed homes in a suffocating sludge. Dozens of houses were buried when hillsides collapsed after torrential downpours in Hiroshima, television pictures showed, leaving rescuers to pick through the devastation for any signs of life. A spokesman for Hiroshima Police told Agence France-Presse the death toll was still climbing.
