    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.
