China's state television said Saturday that 26 people have died in a landslide that buried an iron ore plant and several homes in a valley in southwestern China. CCTV said that seven people have been rescued, three of which were seriously injured but in a stable condition in the hospital. Fifty-two people are still missing, including 27 workers buried in a mine after the landslide in Wulong county about 90 miles (150 kilometers) from Chongqing, said an official with the propaganda office of Wulong, who would only give her surname, Zhu. Rescuers are digging a channel to relieve a lake that formed when the landslide blocked a river, it said.
