Guatemala's tragic toll

Rescue teams focus on recovery of bodies buried under mud as toll approaches 50 mark.

    The worst rains in half a century have inundated towns and triggered dozens of landslides, killing at least 46 people. Rescue teams are focused on trying to recover the bodies of victims buried under tonnes of mud and debris in the western region of Solola.

    A landslide surprised villagers and rescuers who were trying to save victims from another landslide in the same spot. Dozens are feared dead.
