Mudslide Kills University Students in South Korea

In the Southern part of Korea, a heavy rainfall which activated mudslides killed at least 32 people.

Students operating a volunteer camp for nearby children in a resort village in Chuncheon were asleep at midnight when suddenly the landslide surrounded their home. As many as 13 University students have been found dead in the mud. The Chuncheon police rescued about 20 people alive from the muddy waters.

In Southern Seoul, the National Emergency Management Agency says about 16 citizens have been found dead after the mudslide slammed into a hillside residential area and apartment building.
