Five people were killed and at least two others were missing after a landslide demolished part of a shanty town in the southern Philippines, officials said Friday. The bodies of the five were recovered after they were buried in a landslide near the mountain town of Monkayo, said town councillor Glenda Veralino. An earlier report said the landslide occurred near Sitio Dipo. Three of the dead were believed to be children, according to civil defence official Antonio Clomo. The landslide occurred late Thursday after heavy rain loosened soil above a group of shacks.
