YANGON:  At least four people were killed and seven others were missing in a landslide in Myanmar‘s Mandalay region on Tuesday, an official of a local Fire Services Department told media.

A landslide destroyed three houses, burying 11 people in Mogok township of Mandalay on Tuesday morning, said the township fire services department official.

At least four dead bodies including two children have been recovered as of Tuesday afternoon.

“It is unlikely to rescue the missing ones alive,” the official said.
