Locals scrambled to search for the deadly landslide by hand

Thousands of people are at risk of landslides in Papua New Guinea as the search for people continues in a village in Egna province.

The country’s disaster agency said it feared 2,000 people had been buried by landslides, an estimate much higher than the United Nations’ figure of 670.

It is difficult to determine the exact number of casualties in the disaster that devastated the village early Friday.

Satellite images revealed the scale of the deadly landslide and video footage showed desperate efforts to rescue survivors believed buried under rubble.
