Rescuers battle to find bodies in Myanmar

NSD Logo
Recovery teams in Myanmar are fighting against a huge lake of sludge in their search for bodies after a landslide engulfed more than 50 jade miners in Hpakant township in northern Kachin state.

The latest fatal accident in a notoriously dangerous but highly-lucrative industry struck late on Monday night. 

By yesterday night, only three bodies had been recovered as searching in the mud is difficult.  The open jade mines in Hpakant township have turned the landscape into a vast moonscape-like terrain of barren hills and vast valleys of dirt scoured by companies for the precious gems. Dozens die each year in landslides caused by mining, a poorly regulated industry rife with corruption.
