Landslide in Mankha

More than 150 people are feared dead when a landslide struck in Mankha, 140 km east of Kathmandu. The disaster has left the police confirming 10 dead and it has been advised that there is a very little hope of rescue efforts being successful as a huge pile of debris has made the effort impossible to be implied immediately.

Local villagers and the Nepali army have been working together to clear the debris, find survivors and clear the blockage in Sunkoshi river created by the landslide, which threatens to drown the habitable land of Mankha.
