Baku, March 17, AZERTAC

Rescue workers in Peru have recovered the bodies of at least two people, including a one-month-old infant, as they continue to search for missing residents after a major landslide struck a community in the country’s north, according to Al Jazeera.

The landslide occurred on Tuesday in the town of Retamas, in Peru’s La Libertad region, destroying several homes and other structures.

Peruvian Defence Minister Jose Luis Gavidia had said earlier that eight people were rescued unharmed from the rubble, while eight others – including three children – remained missing.
