Deadly Landslide Hits Indonesia


February 24, 2010 — A tea plantation in Indonesia's West Java has been devastated by a deadly landslide.

At least 17 people have died and more than 60 are still missing after a massive landslide came crashing down in Indonesia.

The slide struck a tea plantation in the West Java district and was more than 300 metres deep. About 50 houses, a mosque and a health centre were all caught in the mud.

Military personnel dug through the debris to try and find survivors, but broken roads hampered the rescue effort.

Landslides are common in Indonesia during the rainy season. The West Java region has also been dealing with floods in recent weeks.
