Residents are evacuated after a massive landslide ravages a village in southwest China.
Dramatic footage as a landslide sweeps away 26 houses and six acres of farmland in China's Sichuan province.
More than 1400 villagers in the township have been evacuated after rocks and earth poured down a mountain slope, blocking a river and turning it into a barrier lake.
Hundreds of soldiers and police officers and local officials helped to move villagers to safety, with rescue operations still underway to relocate the remaining 2,000 residents.
