Landslide kills 12
TWELVE people are feared dead in a cyclone shelter swamped by a landslide caused by heavy rains in eastern India, officials said.
Krishan Kumar, a spokesman for the National Disaster Response Force, said relief officials rushed to the remote area in Gajapati district in Orissa state.
The landslide hit on Friday, a day after a severe cyclone that caused heavy rains in parts of eastern India.
Villagers had moved to the shelter to escape the fury of Cyclone Titli, which whipped up wind speeds of up to 95 miles per hour.
