CONAKRY- At least eight people died in Guinea on Tuesday in a mudslide at a rubbish landfill site on the outskirts of the capital, Conakry, amid torrential rains, police and government officials said.

The disaster, which occurred in the Dar Es Salam neighborhood, follows major landslides in Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo that have left hundreds dead or missing in recent days.
