The death toll from Costa Rica's magnitude-6.1 earthquake rose to 19 dead, with 23 missing, officials said Monday. The quake rocked the Central American nation on Thursday, unleashing massive landslides and destroying homes in a mountainous, remote region popular with tourists and farmers. Fifteen of the victims have been identified. The death toll rose by one Monday as rescue officials suspended from a helicopter dug out the body of a man who was buried in his car on a steep incline. Rescue efforts have been slow, and more than 100 people had been listed as missing over the weekend.
