Yangon (AFP) – Dozens are feared dead after a landslide in northern Myanmar’s Kachin state engulfed jade miners while they were sleeping, local police said Tuesday, the latest accident in a notoriously dangerous industry.

“Fifty-four people are missing in the mud,” a duty officer from the Hpakant police station in Kachin told AFP, adding that “there’s no way they (the missing) could have survived.”
