XINMO, China (Reuters) – Villagers in China visited what used to be their relatives’ homes yesterday to mourn loved ones lost when a landslide swept down a mountain, with little hope of finding anyone alive after more than 48 hours of fruitless searching. At least 93 people are missing after the landslide engulfed Xinmo village in mountainous Sichuan province as dawn broke on Saturday. Ten people have been confirmed dead. The government has sent some 3,000 rescuers, along with heavy digging equipment, and has promised to do all it can to look for survivors.
