Indonesia landslide: Rescuers search for missing in Java

A landslide on the Indonesian island of Java has left at least 11 people dead and more than 100 missing.

Heavy rain caused the landslide near Jemblung village in central Java.

A lack of heavy equipment is hampering rescue efforts, with many forced to dig with their bare hands.

Alice Budisatrijo in Jakarta reports that, 24 hours on, it is unlikely that many more survivors will be found.
