Mon State [Myanmar], Aug 12 (ANI): At least 51 people lost their lives after monsoons triggered landslides in Myanmar's Mon State, according to the country's Fire Services Department.

"Search and rescue operations are being carried out by using life detectors such as Thermal Imaging Camera (TIC) and Leader Hasty," an official told Xinhua.

Heavy rains led to a major landslide at the Ma-lat mountain. People, houses and vehicles were caught in the mud discharge.

The towns of Paung, Mawlamyine, Mudon, Thanbyuzayat, Kyaikmaraw and Ye were flooded, while schools were temporarily shut down in Paung since Friday. (ANI)
