Landslide Buries Homes in Indonesia


A landslide in Indonesia's central Java province has buried or badly damaged more than 100 homes.

Officials say the landslide in the village of Cijeruk occurred just after dawn Wednesday following heavy rains.

They say they do not know how many people were buried in the landslide, but fear many people were in their homes sleeping or just waking up at the time of the disaster.

Police say they are searching for survivors.

On Monday, flash floods and landslides in East Java killed at least 57 people. Reports say hundreds of buildings were destroyed, and thousands of people left homeless. Search and rescue operations there are ongoing.

Some information for this report provided by AFP and AP.
