    At least nine are reported dead after one of the worst mudslides in the nation’s history buried homes on the outskirts of Guatemala City on Thursday night.

    Heavy rains caused a massive section of hillside to collapse in Santa Catarina Pinula, on the outskirts of Guatemala’s capital. With at least 25 injured, hundreds of rescue workers continue to search for survivors.

    As many as 200 may be missing.
