China says at least 150 people have been buried or trapped in a landslide caused by heavy rains in the southwest of the country.

The official Xinhua news agency said the landslide occurred Monday afternoon in Guizhou province.

The agency said rescue work is under way.

Widespread flooding hit areas of southern China last week, with at least 235 people killed and more than 100 still missing.

Heavy rains that began June 13 have also caused economic losses of more than $10 billion so far.
