SHANGHAI: Six people have been found with no signs of life after going missing a week ago during landslides caused by heavy rainfall in China’s south-eastern province of Fujian, state television CCTV reported on Saturday (June 22).

Rescue workers found them after an extensive search since losing contact with the victims on June 16, CCTV said.

Unusually heavy rain has hit southern China after an early start to the annual flooding season.

The death toll reached 38 on June 21 in Meizhou city in China’s southern Guangdong province, where downpours led to flash floods and mudslides that destroyed thousands of low-rise houses and damaged roads and crops, CCTV said. - Reuters
