The “bodies of 10 people have so far been discovered and search for bodies of the remaining two people has continued,” state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporate reported, citing the district police chief.

Landslides are common during Ethiopia’s months-long rainy season.

In May, at least 32 people were killed in landslides caused by heavy rains in southern Ethiopia.
