Two bodies found, 70 still missing in Bududa
Rescue workers removed two more bodies buried in the mud after a landslide roared down rain-saturated hills and engulfed homes in Bududa on Tuesday, local authorities said.
The body of a baby was rescued at 2 p.m. Saturday while 70 people remain missing, according to a spokesman for the Uganda Red Cross.
The landslide occurred last Tuesday in Bududa, which was drenched by a rainstorm. The landslide is estimated to have killed 20 people.
More than 200 police, medical workers and other rescue personnel continued digging through the rubble to find the buried people. Excavators were also operating at the scene.
