Over a dozen feared dead after Japan landslide

Fire fighters carry a person covered by a blue sheet at the site of a landslide caused by heavy rain in Ashikita, Kumamoto prefecture on Saturday. Fourteen people were feared dead at a nursing home in western Japan on July 4 as record rainfall triggered massive floods and landslides, forcing authorities to issue evacuation advisories for more than 200,000 residents.
