COSCOMATEPEC DE BRAVO, Mexico, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- A rescue team of more than 300 people has recovered the bodies of 11 victims killed by a landslide in Mexico, officials said.
Thirteen people were buried by the landslide late Monday, the Diario Xalapa reported.
Eight children were killed in the landslide, including an eight-day-old baby, a 10-month-old and an 11-month old, officials said.
Rescue efforts began at 6 a.m. Tuesday after the landslide hit late Monday in Coscomatepec de Bravo in the state of Veracruz.
The rescue effort was called off at 4:30 p.m. after officials determined that none of the 13 people survived.
The governor of Veracruz, Javier Duarte de Ochoa, said the government will support relocating families from the high-risk area.
"We have been working very coordinated with the federation and municipalities, in order to be able to relocate many families that are [in] truly dangerous areas, such as hillsides and mountains, and in this particular case, practically next to a bank of sand," he said.
