Indonesia landslide: Dozens missing in Java

A landslide on the Indonesian island of Java has left at least 17 people dead and more than 90 missing.

Heavy rain caused the landslide near Jemblung village in central Java, sweeping away more than 100 homes.

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