JAKARTA, Nov 14 (Reuters) - At least three people were killed and 13 are missing after torrential rains triggered floods and a landslide in several areas of Indonesia's West Java province, a health ministry official said on Friday.

Rustam Pakaya, head of the health ministry's crisis centre, said two bodies had been recovered and 13 were missing and believed to buried under a landslide which swept over several houses in West Java's Cianjur regency late on Thursday.

Separately, one person died in floods in Bandung regency that displaced more than a 1,000 people. Floods and landslides are common during the rainy season in Indonesia.
