About 60 people are missing and six dead have been found after a landslide at a tea plantation in Indonesia's West Java province, a disaster relief agency official said on Wednesday, as the military searched for survivors.
The 300-metre-deep landslide, which took place on Tuesday, has covered about 50 houses, a small tea factory, a mosque and a health centre in Ciwidey area, about 150 km (90 miles) southeast of the capital, Jakarta.
Media reports on Tuesday said four people had died and 40 buried after the landslide.
"Two excavators arrived last night but the digging has mostly been done with hoes," said Panji Syahril Maulana of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency.
