    The death toll from a massive landslide at a rubbish dump in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa over the weekend has risen to at least 60, as rescuers continue to pick through the wreckage.

    The avalanche of garbage on Saturday levelled more than 30 makeshift homes of squatters living inside the Koshe landfill on the outskirts of the capital.
