At least 7 killed in central Mexico landslide

Mexican authorities say at least seven people were killed in a landslide unleashed by heavy rain in the central state of Puebla.

Puebla state Gov. Rafael Moreno Valle says rescue crews have found seven bodies, including those of two children ages 5 and 11.

Moreno Valle confirmed the deaths Thursday on his Twitter account.

Moreno Valle said in a statement that heavy rain unleashed a river of water and mud that came down a street in the town of Huehuetlan El Grande, burying at least five vehicles late Wednesday.

He said soldiers and other rescue crews have been sent to the area.
