More Than 20 Dead in Latest Brazil Mudslide

At least 22 people have been reported killed in the most recent deadly mudslide in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro state.

The bodies were found Friday under mounds of mud after a hotel and nearby homes collapsed in the beach town of Angra dos Reis.

On Thursday, mudslides and floods killed 19 people across the state. Most of the deaths occurred as shacks in poor areas collapsed under mud and rain.

Rescuers are quoted as saying heavy rains forecast for the next few days could trigger more mudslides.
