GUIYANG - Six people died, two were injured and another five have been reported missing following a landslide that occurred Monday in Southwest China's Guizhou province.

The landslide occurred at 10:42 pm, when construction workers were repairing a road damaged by a previous landslide in Sinan county on Sunday evening, said officials from the county government Tuesday.

Monday's landslide buried the workers and excavators which had been fixing the road.

Rescuers are searching for the missing workers.
