At least 16 people have been killed in a poor neighborhood of Abidjan when a mudslide buried their rickety homes. An Associated Press reporter at the scene has counted 16 bodies that have been removed from the rubble. Rescue teams are still searching the mud for bodies. Friday's mudslide followed heavy rains the night before, which caused the hillside in the neighborhood of Atecoube, where the homes were located, to become unstable.
