May 19 , 2015
A major landslide in north-west Colombia’s Antioquia province has claimed more than 50 lives. President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos said it is still not clear how many people are missing. The landslide was caused when the Liboriana River, situated in the town of Salgar, burst its banks due to heavy rains. Rescue teams, along with the residents, are digging through the rubble to find survivors.
