Hundreds feared buried under Sri Lanka mudslide

Sri Lankan men stand by a damaged house caused by mudslide at the Koslanda tea plantation in Badulla district, about 220 kilometers (140 miles) east of Colombo, Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014.
A mudslide triggered by monsoon rains buried scores of workers' houses at a tea plantation in central Sri Lanka, raising fears that hundreds may have been killed.

In the chaos that followed Wednesday morning's disaster, there was confusion about the number of dead and missing because government officials reported different figures and later reduced the number of missing by 100 without explanation.
