Landslide kills 4 with more than a dozen missing in Myanmar

The accident was caused by heavy rain Tuesday near the town of Hpakant, 350 kilometres north of the country’s second largest city Mandalay, according to local official Tin Swe Myint.
He added that about 15 people were still missing, contradicting local media reports stating that as many as 100 people had yet to be rescued.
The official said rescuers were in the process of clearing debris in search of survivors.
