At least 40 are feared dead after a landslide hit six villages in Nepal Wednesday night.
Nepalese police posted pictures and information to their Facebook page, but due to the remoteness of the six villages affected by the slide, details are scarce.
The landslide occurred in the mountainous and remote Taplejung district where officials believe recent heavy rainfall is to blame.
