world Updated: Dec 06, 2010 07:35 IST

As many as 200 people may have been buried in a landslide that swept over 10 houses in Medellin, Colombia's second largest city, Red Cross relief workers said.

"The initial count is that there may be 150-200 people considered missing. So far we have rescued three alive," said Cesar Uruena, a Red Cross operations deputy director.

"We are focused on moving rubble to see if we find survivors," he added.
