Heavy rainfall caused landslides on the road linking La Paz, to the northern town of Caranavi. Local reports say at least 14 people have been killed and a further seven are missing.

Hundreds of tonnes of earth and rock collapsed from the moutainous hillsides burying several vehicles. Helicopters were deployed to transport over 30 injured people to local hospitals.

After the initial landslide a secondary slide occurred causing more casualties.
