Guatemalan officials say they have given up hope for dozens of people buried when a landslide engulfed a highway north-west of the capital.

The mud crashed onto the road as a crowd tried to dig out vehicles buried by a previous landslide.

Scores more landslides and floods have struck other areas of the country with more rains predicted in the days ahead.
