At least 100 killed in Myanmar jade mine landslide

This handout from the Myanmar Fire Services Department taken and released on Thursday shows rescuers attempting to locate survivors after a landslide at a jade mine in Hpakant, Kachin state. The bodies of at least 50 jade miners were pulled from the mud on July 2 after a landslide in northern Myanmar, fire services said, as monsoon rains worsen already deadly conditions.
