KARACHI (AFP) – Thirteen people including seven children were crushed to death in Karachi Tuesday when a rare landslide struck their thatch huts as they slept, officials said.

The victims, who police said were from three families, were living on a plot of land carved out of a hill in the eastern neighbourhood of Gulistane Jauhar when the tragedy struck in the early hours.

Tearful relatives gathered at the scene, watching as the bodies were pulled from the rubble and wrapped in shrouds. One victim was a girl believed to be as young as six months, a rescue worker told AFP.
