BEIJING— Landslides caused by heavy rain in southern China have killed at least 38 people, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Thursday.

Rescuers have recovered 18 more bodies in the Guangxi region, where landslides triggered by torrential rains this week have blocked roads and damaged homes. Twenty-three people have died in Rongxian county and 12 in Cenxi county — the worst-hit areas.

Xinhua says more than 80,000 people have been evacuated from a seven-city area because of heavy rain that started Monday and almost 3,000 people were evacuated from their homes after they were destroyed.
