    It's been a week since a devastating landslide killed more than 300 people in the Colombian city of Mocoa.

    A recovery operation continues for those still missing and a 30-day state of emergency remains in place to allow the government to speed up the reconstruction effort.

    But there is growing concern over what caused the disaster.

    Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman reports from Mocoa.
