BEIJING: Eleven people were missing after rain triggered landslides in southwest China on Monday, the latest victims of widespread flooding that has left 1,100 dead or missing, state media said.
The landslides occurred in a remote part of Yunnan, one of many provinces hit in recent months by heavy rains that have caused the country's worst flooding in a decade.
Another 11 people were injured in the landslides which struck early Monday morning in the province's Gongshan county, the official news agency said. National weather authorities have warned of still more rain in flood-hit areas, which are generally centred on the drainage basin of the Yangtze river, China's longest.The persistent rains, often torrential downpours, have wreaked havoc in countless communities, killing 742 people and leaving 367 missing since the start of the year, according to the latest official figures on Friday.
