Landslides Kill Six In Mexico

At least six people have been killed, following landslides, triggered by heavy rain from Tropical Storm Earl, in Mexico.

Six people died in eastern Mexico when their homes were buried under landslides caused by heavy rain in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Earl.

The dead included a married couple and their one-year-old son, officials said.

It happened on Saturday in Veracruz state, and there are warnings that rivers may flood in the neighbouring state of Puebla.

Storm Earl has already killed at least nine people on Monday as it gathered in the Caribbean, before reaching Mexico.

Six of the victims were passengers on board a bus that caught fire in the town of Nagua, in the Dominican Republic, when it was hit by tumbling power lines. Three people also drowned in Haiti when their tour boat capsized.
