14 killed, 10 missing in Nepal landslide: Report

At least 14 people have been killed and seven others injured in a landslide triggered by heavy rains in western Nepal.

Police spokesman Dan Bahadur Karki said rescue teams had pulled out the dead and injured from the rubble of five muddy houses in Achham district, about 450 km (281 miles) west of the capital Kathmandu.

Local media footage showed rescue workers clearing mud with their hands and searching for missing people who are believed to be trapped. Officials said the injured have been taken to a nearby hospital.

Floods and landslides occur frequently in the mountainous regions of Nepal, especially during the annual monsoon rains between June and September.

At least 48 people have been killed and 12 are missing in flash floods and landslides across the country so far this year, according to official figures.
