Landslide kills dozens in Hiroshima

Soldiers and rescue workers look for survivors at the site of a landslide after heavy rains hit the city of Hiroshima, western Japan, on August 20, 2014. Rain-sodden slopes collapsed in torrents of mud, rock and debris early Wednesday in the outskirts of Hiroshima, killing at least 36 people, police said.
