Rescuers Find Crushed Bus Buried in Chinese Landslide, 30 Believed Dead

Chinese officials say there is little hope for survivors from a landslide in central China, which has killed about 30 people.

Rescue workers found a crushed bus Friday underneath the rubble at a railway tunnel construction site near the Three Gorges Dam in Hubei province.

Checkpoint records show the bus was carrying 27 people. Earlier reports from state media said the landslide killed one worker and injured another. Two workers are still missing.

The landslide happened Tuesday amid criticism over the environmental impact of the world's biggest dam. Local officials have warned that China faces a catastrophe if it fails to stop erosion and other problems around the reservoir.

However, Chinese officials suggest there is no connection between the dam and the landslide.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
