The death toll from a landslide that occurred in a tourist camp near the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, has risen to 23.

Reuters quoted Norazam Khamis, head of the Fire and Rescue Department in the central state of Selangor, as saying today: The search operations continued for the second day after stopping at night due to heavy rains, which made the matter more difficult. During the search operations, rescue teams recovered other bodies, bringing the number of victims to 23.

The State Fire and Rescue Department stated that among the 94 people who were present at the site of the landslide (Batang Kali), 61 were found unharmed, while ten are still missing, as journalists indicated that the chances of survival of more missing people are diminishing due to the lack of oxygen and silt gravity.

According to preliminary investigations, the collapse covered approximately 450,000 cubic meters of land from a height of 30 meters and an area of ​​about an acre.

Earlier yesterday, 16 people were killed as a result of the collapse.
