Landslide Kills 3 in Bosnia

TUZLA, Bosnia-Herzegovina – A landslide unleashed by heavy rain has killed three people and left several families homeless in the northern Bosnian town of Tuzla.

Neighbors told The Associated Press that they rescued one man but could not help his wife, teenage son and the boy’s grandmother escape from a three-story house that slid some 20 meters (yards) downhill before it collapsed and was buried in mud early Sunday morning.

Amid heavy rainfall over the past five days, the Balkans have faced the worst floods in a century and authorities have evacuated thousands of people.
