Landslide kills dozens
The Ugandan Red Cross says at least 34 people have died in mudslides triggered by torrential rains in a mountainous area of eastern Uganda that is prone to such disasters. More victims were expected to be discovered when rescue teams access all the affected areas in the foothills of Mountain Elgon, in the district of Bududa. In March 2010 at least 100 people died in similar mudslides in Bududa. Efforts by the Government over the years to relocate people have not succeeded.
