Search for missing victims in Sabah and Indonesia - The Straits Times

KOTA KINABALU/JAKARTA • Seven people were missing after a landslide hit workers' quarters in an oil palm estate in the interior Sook district of Sabah. The missing - two 17-year-old girls, two 13-year-old boys and three eight-year-old children - were among 11 people in a riverside wooden house that was hit by the landslide on Saturday.

"We received a distress call from the estate owner at 12.19pm on the incident and sent our team to the area, but they could not proceed because the bridge to the estate was damaged," he said. He added that four other estate workers - a man, a woman, a boy and a girl - were found safe by their fellow workers following the landslide. 42115063_-_02_04_2017_-_indonesia-disaster-landsli...
