Colombia landslide: 11 more bodies found in Rosas

Rescue workers have found 11 bodies buried in the mud after a landslide hit the Colombian town of Rosas on Sunday, BBC reports.

The number of people killed in the town in south-western Cauca province has risen to 28.

At least two people are still missing but emergency workers say hopes of finding anyone alive are slim.

Landslides are common in Colombia and houses built on steep hillsides are at particular risk during the country's rainy season.

In April 2017, more than 250 people were killed when a landslide hit the town of Mocoa, in Putumayo province.
