At least 46 people died and dozens more were hurt in a giant landslide at Ethiopia's largest rubbish dump outside Addis Ababa, a tragedy squatters living there blamed on a biogas plant being built nearby. Of 46 people dead, 32 were female, 14 male that includes some children. Saturday's landslide flattened dozens of homes of people living in the Koshe dump when part of the largest pile of rubbish collapsed, an AFP journalist said.
The streets in the neighbourhood below were filled with women sobbing and wailing.
Bystanders said there were still people trapped under collapsed mounds of rubbish, but police were preventing locals from getting close to the site.
