Over 300 Buried in Papua New Guinea Landslide, Local Media Says

A massive landslide has devastated a remote village in northern Papua New Guinea, burying over 300 people and more than 1,100 houses, Reuters reported today.

The landslide occurred around 3 a.m. on Friday in the Enga Province, approximately 600 km northwest of the capital Port Moresby, the news agency added.

Authorities report that several villages in the Mulitaka region have been impacted, and the death toll is expected to rise as emergency teams attempt to access the area, which has been cut off due to blocked highway access.
