Dozens killed in landslides in China's Gansu province

At least 127 people have been killed in landslides triggered by heavy rain in north-west China and 2,000 are missing, say reports on state-run media.

The landslides hit a mainly Tibetan area in Gansu province, burying a number of houses and blocking a river which has swollen to flood a wide area.

Michael Bristow reports.
