Seven people were killed in a landslide triggered by heavy rain at an indigenous settlement in Malaysia.

The area, where the landslide yesterday buried several houses in a village, is occupied by "orang asli" tribe.

Police said search parties with tracker dogs found two survivors and recovered seven bodies near the hill resorts of
Cameron Highlands during eight-hour rescue mission.

Dozens of families were also evacuated after three hillside homes were buried by a mudslide following heavy rains.
