Question of the Day
20 bodies recovered in landslide
BELLO | Colombian authorities said they recovered 20 bodies — including those of two children — after a landslide in a poor Medellin suburb and that more than 100 people were missing and feared dead.
Sunday’s landslide was triggered by Colombia’s worst rains in 40 years.
John Rendon, emergency coordinator for Antioquia state, where the suburb is located, said 30 homes were buried under tons of sodden earth in the slide.
Three hundred rescuers were working Monday to recover bodies from the debris. Nearly five out of every six municipalities in Antioquia have declared emergencies because of the rains.
The Red Cross said the death toll from floods and mudslides triggered by this year’s rainfall was 188, including the victims of Sunday’s slide.

5 killed in boat capsize
TORTOLA | Authorities said at least five people died after a boat filled with migrants from Haiti capsized off the British Virgin Islands amid jagged reefs.
Virgin Islands Search and Rescue said in a statement that six people from the boat are still missing and three are hospitalized. The other survivors have been detained.
U.S. Coast Guard spokesman Ricard Castrodad said the migrants’ boat had been spotted and authorities had been in pursuit Monday just before it struck the reef along the southern coast of Tortola.
