Landslide kills four in Indonesian Papua: official
Posted 6 hours 27 minutes ago

A landslide has killed four people after heavy rain outside the capital of Indonesia's remote eastern Papua province, an official said.

"Four people have been killed and several houses were damaged because of the landslide. Rain was likely the cause of the disaster," Health Ministry Crisis Centre head Rustam Pakaya said, adding the incident happened north of Jayapura city.

"There was rescue effort earlier but it has been stopped. There are no reports of any injured," he said.

Landslides and flooding are common in Indonesia during the rainy season, which runs from December to March.
