Villagers begin to mourn dead after deadly China landslideBy Sue-Lin Wong XINMO, China (Reuters) – Villagers in China visited what used to be their relatives’ homes on Monday to mourn loved ones lost when a landslide swept down a mountain, with little hope of finding anyone alive after more than 48 hours of fruitless searching. At least 93 people are missing after the landslide engulfed Xinmo village in mountainous Sichuan province as dawn broke on Saturday. Some villagers said they’ve always known landslides are a big danger but authorities never offered to help them move.
