Nearly 400 bodies recovered from Sierra Leone mudslide: coroner

 

Fear are mounting that up to 1,000 people could have died under the mud that ripped through Freetown, Sierra Leone, last week.

More than 450 victims are already confirmed to have died, after part of a mountain on the outskirts of the capital city caved in following heavy rain.

But it is believed the number of missing could exceed 600, and hopes are dimming for their chances of survival.

Rescue officials have warned that the chances of finding survivors “are getting smaller every day”.
