Deadly landslide follows China rainstorms

A landslide has killed five people in China's Guizhou province, according to state media (CCTV).

CCTV said one person was found one person alive, after soldiers joined the search for survivors.

Torrential rainstorms have battered large parts of China over the last week, with flooding toppling or seriously damaging over 100,000 homes.

The government says up to 300 people are either dead or missing.
