Huge Dump Collapses in Sri Lanka-At least 16 Dead
Huge Dump Collapses in Sri Lanka-At least 16 people were killed near Colombo, capital of Sri Lanka, when a large pile of garbage collapsed.
The place has been used for years by the Colombo municipality to deposit dirt and garbage.
Around the landfill are small, rickety houses where poor people live. The huge pile of garbage began to slide and buried at least 40 of the houses.
Soldiers search further if there are people under the debris. Residents say they have warned several times about the collapse, which the waste was about.
