24 confirmed dead in Uganda landslide

AT LEAST 24 people have died in a landslide in eastern Uganda. Torrential rains triggered the collapse in the Bulambuli district, where residents fear as many as 35 people may have been killed, Reuters reports. Hundreds of people died in a similar incident last year – after which authorities vowed to relocate up to half a million people to avoid a repeat of the tragedy.
