Police have raided the office of the firm responsible for the landfill behind a landslide that left at least 76 people missing and destroyed 33 buildings, Reuters reported. Shenzhen Yixianglong Investment Development had bought the rights to manage the dump site for RMB750,000 (US$115,766) despite not having a license to operate in the area of logistics management. A contract document between Luwei and Yixianglong, obtained by the news agency, showed that Yixianglong agreed to assume responsibility in the event of an accident. Thousands of workers have been using sensors, drones and earth excavators at the 94-acre disaster site trying to reach possible survivors.
