The landslide in the Jade mine in Myanmar has killed 200 people. 54 people were injured.
Over 200 people were feared buried in watery mud that swept through an open pit mining site in northern Myanmar.
More than 80 other people were reported missing in the incident, according to an officer of the fire services department involved in the rescue operations.
Residents said it was the fifth landslide to occur in the accident-prone mining site, where enforcement of mining laws is almost non-existent.
The victims are normally freelance miners who settle near giant mounds of discarded earth that has been mined in bulk by heavy machinery. The freelance miners who scavenge for bits of jade usually work and live at the base of the mounds of earth, which become particularly unstable during the rainy season.
