#Ethiopia Trash Dump Landslide Kills 115
Local Editor

Emergency workers in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa searched through a mountain of garbage for the fifth consecutive day Thursday as the death toll from a landslide at a rubbish landfill site rose to 115.


The Horn of Africa country has declared three days of national mourning for the victims of the disaster that occurred at the 50-year-old Reppi dump Saturday evening.

Two bodies were uncovered Thursday morning, rescue workers and residents taking part in the search said, a day after a government spokesperson raised the toll to 113, 75 of whom were women.
