At least 10 people have been killed in a landslide in the northeastern Indian state of Mizoram, police said Tuesday.
 
The landslide happened in Lunglei town and was triggered by heavy rains that started lashing large parts of southern Mizoram since late Monday night.
 
“The victims lost their lives after their house was swept away by thev landslide. One person who sustained injuries in the natural disaster has been hospitalised,” a police official said.
 
The district disaster response team has rushed to the spot. “Rescue workers are searching for bodies and other people feared trapped in the debris since this morning,” he said.
 
Landslides are common in northern and northeastern India in the monsoon season from July to September as well as in the pre-monsoon month of June.
 
In June last year, some 10 people were killed and several went missing after flash floods and landslides caused by heavy rains wreaked havoc in Lunglei district.Xinhua
