UN Says 670 People Buried In Landslide.

United Nations says 670 people are estimated to be buried under a massive landslide in Papua New Guinea.


The head of the International Organization for Migration in Papua New Guinea, Serhan Aktoprak, said the impact the landslide in the country's isolated Enga province was greater than initially thought.


The affected areas are in the highlands of Enga, in the north of the island nation in the south-west Pacific.


Aktoprak also said, rescuers were at risk because "the land still sliding".


At least 1,000 people have been displaced as a result of the disaster, while, Aktoprak said, gardens that had grown food and water supplies were almost completely wiped out.
