19 Dead in Guatemala Landslide


Guatemalan officials say at least 19 people have died in a landslide caused by heavy rains.

Benedicto Giron, a spokesman for the disaster response agency, said he fears more people were killed by the landslide, which buried houses in San Antonio Senahu.

Five years ago, a landslide killed more than a dozen people in the village in Guatemala's coffee-producing region.
