Colombia: 17 people killed in mudslide

At least 17 people have been killed and five others have been injured as a result of a mudslide in the southwestern part of Colombia. The mudslide occurred following days of torrential rain in the region of Cauca, which has destroyed many homes in the city of Rosas.

Mudslides are very common in this Latin American country, especially during the rainy seasons. The authorities are looking for people who may have survived as they continue to clear up the main road so that it may be re-opened.

The President of Colombia Iván Duque visited the city and said that medical assistance and alternative accommodation would be given to those who have been affected by the mudslide.
