The mountain of rubbish in a large landfill dump collapsed, trapping dozens of people. The incident buried makeshift houses and concrete buildings.

At least 35 people were killed and dozens more injured in a giant landslide at a garbage dump on the outskirts of the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, officials said Sunday.
The landslide occurred late Saturday night, destroying 30 makeshift homes belonging to squatters who live on the Koshe landfill and scavenge the dump for valuables, according to Dagmawit Moges, a city spokeswoman.
"We expect the number of victims to increase because the landslide covered a relatively large area," she said.
About 150 people are believed to be living on the garbage pile, but it was not immediately clear how many people were missing.
An Associated Press news agency reporter saw four bodies taken away by ambulances after being pulled from the debris.
Ruth Tadesee, who lives on the landfill with her family, was among those waiting for news.
"All my brothers and sisters were rescued but my mother is not answering her phone, she could still be inside that rubble," Tadesee said.
