Probe into 23 'sharing house'

A GARDA and HSE probe is underway into the circumstances in which 23 non-nationals including two pregnant 15-year-old girls are allegedly sharing a house in west Dublin, a court has heard.

One of the pregnant 15-year-old girls has a case in the Children's Court for a shoplifting offence. Earlier a judge had raised concerns about the circumstances in which the girl and her mother have been living with several others at the address.

Landslide toll rises in China

A landslide caused by rains in southern China left 21 people missing today, adding to a growing death toll from China's worst flood season in a decade.

Rocks and mud buried 58 homes, and about 4,000 villagers were evacuated from their homes in the southern province of Sichuan.

Floods this year have already killed at least 823 people and left 437 missing.
