A landslide in southern India has killed at least 52 people and destroyed dozens of buildings, including one Protestant church, in recent days.
For nearly a week, Kerala state has faced monsoon rainfalls and flooding, triggering a massive landslide in the Idukki district. Dozens of houses on a tea plantation were demolished, and about 70 people were buried by the mud when a hill collapsed.
More than a dozen people are still missing, and search-and-rescue operations are ongoing.
A 151-year-old Protestant Church of South India building collapsed during the flooding on Aug. 11, UCA News reported.
