The victims were killed when the landslide crushed three houses in the Dawro Zone of the Horn of Africa country’s SNNP province, Fana Broadcasting Corporation said.

“The bodies of ten people have been recovered. The search is ongoing to uncover the remaining two corpses,” the agency said, quoting a district police chief.

The official said the four critically injured people were taken to hospital for treatment.
