Rescuers Find More Dead at Tibet Landslide Site

China's state-run media say rescue workers have found three more bodies, bringing the confirmed death toll from a massive landslide in Tibet to four, with 79 still missing and feared dead.

The official Xinhua news agency said one body was found Saturday, a day after the landslide buried 83 workers at a gold mining site about 70 kilometers east of the Tibetan capital, Lhasa.

Officials said Sunday that rescuers are using heavy equipment, tools and even their hands to dig through 2 million cubic meters of dirt, covering about three square kilometers.

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 3,000 rescuers have been dispatched to the area.
