This frame grab, above, from a video released by the Colombian Army on Dec. 30, shows a landslide that ocurred on Dec. 29 along a road between the cities of Neiva and Florencia, in southwestern Colombia. The slide left at least two people dead, seven injured and vehicles buried in mud, officials and witnesses said. Army troops, police and Red Cross teams with heavy machinery and sniffer dogs are examining the site in search of bodies or survivors, said Jesus Gomez, a disaster relief official in the area. The stability of the slope itself is also being assessed to determine if it is safe for the rescue teams to work.
