Landslides kill dozens in Guatemala

Guatemalan authorities say at least 36 people have been killed in landslides caused by weeks of heavy rains.

In the worst incident, a hillside collapsed on a crowd of volunteers as they tried to dig out a bus buried by a previous mudslide.

At least 20 bodies have been recovered, but the search for around 40 people still missing has been suspended for fear of further landslides.
