A state media report says a massive landslide in northern China partially has buried a village and killed at least 23 people, and that rescuers are seeking survivors.

The official Xinhua News Agency says the landslide occurred
Monday in Zhangzishan Township, near Luliang city in northern
Shanxi province.

Xinhua said Tuesday that rescuers have recovered 23 bodies from
the debris so far, and that two people have been pulled out alive.

Most of those killed were migrant workers who worked at a nearby
coal mine.

Xinhua quoted the local Communist Party chief, Nie Chunyu, as
saying that most of the victims were from the southwestern Yunnan
province.
