Landslide Buries 83 Workers in Tibet

China's state-run media say rescue workers have found one body, a day after a massive landslide buried 83 workers at a gold mine in a mountainous area of Tibet.

The official Xinhua news agency said the landslide covered three square kilometers with about two million cubic meters of dirt early Friday morning, burying a workers' camp at the mining site about 70 kilometers east of the Tibetan capital, Lhasa.

Search efforts are being hampered by continuing smaller landslides, the 4,600-meter altitude and temperatures below freezing. The severe cold is affecting the noses of search dogs.

More than 2,000 rescuers have been dispatched to the area.
