• Rescuers comb through devastation of Japan landslide

    1

    TOKYO: Thousands of rescuers combed through the wreckage of homes engulfed by landslides in western Japan on Thursday in the slim hope of finding survivors, a day after a wall of mud claimed at least 39 lives. Police officers, firefighters and soldiers worked through the night in a desperate bid to find seven people still unaccounted for among the sludge and rubble. Dozens of houses were buried when hillsides collapsed after torrential downpours in Hiroshima that saw more than a month’s average rainfall descend in just three hours.
