Children are buried alive in mud landslide

DURING heavy rains, elders in the Ugandan village of Nametsi told children to shelter in the hospital. However, it turned into a death trap as a landslide engulfed the building.

More than 50 pupils are among the hundreds who are feared dead after avalanches of mud hit three villages.

The mudslides swamped the region near the Kenyan border on Monday and Tuesday after torrents of rain had fallen.
