Death Toll Rises to 311 in Colombia Landslides

BOGOTA The death toll from the mudslides that struck the city of Mocoa in southern Colombia has risen to 311, while 178 people remain missing, the National Unit for Disaster Risk Management (UNGRD) reported.

About 100 children were among the 311 people killed, authorities said.

Autopsies have been performed on 308 bodies, 237 of which have been delivered to the family.

A heavy downpour on March 31 led to the overflow of three rivers Mocoa, Sangoyaco and Mulato which swept through several neighborhoods in Mocoa, the capital of the Putumayo region.
