Landslides in Sierra Leone

More than 1,000 people have died from the mudslide and flooding that hit Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown, nearly two weeks ago, according to a local leader and a minister. The government had earlier put the death toll for the August 14 mudslide at 450 dead, while rescuers and aid groups warned that many of the more than 600 people missing would likely not survive. - Al Jazeera
