Rubbish Landslide Kills 48 In Addis Ababa
Officials say dozens of people are still missing since the landslide which occurred on Saturday night at the Koshe landfill.
The area has been a dumping ground for Addis Ababa’s wastes for more than five decades.
According to the BBC, a city spokeswoman told AP news agency that many children were among the dead.
Meanwhile, there are fears that the death toll
could rise further, as a resident said 150 people were there at the time.
Hundreds of people attempt to make a living by scavenging at the landfill site, sifting through the rubbish for items they can sell, the BBC’s Emmanuel Igunza in Addis Ababa reported.
