A landslide caused by torrential rain killed at least 10 people, including women and children, in northwest Pakistan, police said on Monday.

It hit three houses in a mountain village late on Sunday night, and rescue workers struggled desperately to clear rubble without the aid of heavy machinery.

"We recovered 10 bodies but have no idea how many persons are still stranded there," said Shadawan Khan, a police officer in Kalam city, 210 kms northwest of Islamabad.
