At least 62 people died and 200 buried in landslide

At least 62 people were killed and around 200 others were gone missing in a landslide that occurred in a mine in Myanmar. The tragic accident took place at a jade mine in northern Myanmar on Thursday.

The miners were collecting stones in the jade-rich Hpakant area of Kachin state when a “muddy wave” caused by heavy rain buried them. Deadly landslides and other accidents are common in the poorly regulated mines of Hpakant.
