Search for mudslide survivors


Rescue crews have searched into the night for survivors from a massive US mudslide that has killed at least three people, after hearing voices from the debris field pleading for help. The slide of mud, trees and rocks happened in Oso, in Washington state on Saturday. Several people, including an infant, were critically injured, and 18 more are missing. At least six houses were destroyed.
