BBC: Hopes of finding any more survivors from a landslide that buried a village in western India on Wednesday are fading, as the number of bodies found reaches 60, officials said. Bad weather is hampering rescue workers who are digging through mud in Malin village near Pune in Maharashtra state. The landslide hit the village early in the day while people were sleeping. Eight people were rescued in the first few hours, but no survivors have been found in the past 40 hours.
