|Scores killed in China landslide|
At least 65 people have been killed in landslides triggered by heavy rains in flood-hit China, state media has reported.
Rescue teams were searching for hundreds of missing people on Sunday and were preparing an explosion to dislodge a blockage of mud, debris and water in a valley in the Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Gansu province.
The runoff from the downpour late on Saturday banked up behind a landslide in a narrow valley in Zhouqu County in Gannan.
The accumulated water then triggered mudslides that hit the county's main town,
smashed a hydro-electric power station, Xinhua and local television reports said.
"A preliminary estimate is that 50,000 people have been affected by the disaster," state television said. "About half of the county seat was covered."
