Hillside collapses on Guatemalan village, destroying scores of homes, burying hundreds of people

At least 26 bodies have so far been recovered after a hillside collapsed on the village of El Cambray Dos, near the Guatemalan capital, officials said. 

The mudslide may have buried as many as 600 people, according to the Guatemalan disaster agency. About three dozens people were pulled out of the mud and taken to nearby hospitals.

The disaster occurred after extreme rain events washed off the hillside unleashing a torrent of mud and debris onto houses in El Cambray, located in a valley about 12 km east of Guatemala City on Thursday.
