Guatemala mudslides kill at least 38

NAHUALA, Guatemala — Torrential rains from a tropical depression caused mudslides that have killed at least 38 people in Guatemala  — most of them in separate disasters along the same highway.
In the village of Nahuala, rescue crews on Sunday searched through mud and rocks for bodies after two landslides in the same spot killed at least 20 people along a highway leading northwest of the capital toward Mexico.
A slide Saturday afternoon had trapped vehicles at kilometer 171 of the Inter-American highway, and some of the people who came to rescue them were themselves caught by a second slide, officials reported.
