Nearly a dozen die in Colombia landslide, 20 missing | Reuters

BOGOTA At least 11 people have been killed and 20 are missing after a landslide hit several neighborhoods in Manizales, Colombia, the government said on Wednesday.

President Juan Manuel Santos will travel to Manizales, the capital of Caldas province, the government said in a statement. At least 57 houses have been affected, it added.

The landslide followed a similar disaster in Mocoa, Putumayo earlier this month which killed more than 300 people and displaced thousands from their homes. (Reporting by Julia Symmes Cobb; Editing by Andrew Hay)
