Sri Lanka landslide survivors remain homeless

Recent change of government slows down efforts to provide housing for survivors of last year's disaster in Koslanda.

    More than 30 people died in October in a landslide at Koslanda in southern Sri Lanka.

    The new chief minister for the region, Harin Fernando, said affected families will not be forced to move from the area.

    But with a new government just elected, the process of rebuilding houses for the dozens of families that were left homeless in the disaster has slowed significantly.

    Al Jazeera's Minelle Fernandez reports from Koslanda.
