Indonesia: Landslide Toll Rises.............

Rescuers pulled more bodies from the debris on Sunday after heavy rain in central Indonesia loosened soil and collapsed a hill, setting off a landslide that killed at least 32 villagers and left 76 others missing. About 2,000 rescuers were digging through the mud and wreckage. Hopes were fading that the people still missing would be found alive, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, the spokesman for Indonesia’s Disaster Mitigation Agency.
