Bukit Antarabangsa Landslide - Second day
Search and rescue operations have been halted following strong earth movement on the hillslopes on Sunday. This is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of the search and rescue teams which reportedly total 500 personnel from the police, Fire & Rescue, Civil Defence and the army.
Four people were killed. The landslide hit 14 bungalows in Taman Bukit Mewah and Taman Bukit Utama at 4am yesterday.
Police are conducting a thorough examination to ensure that no one is still caught there.
Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar assured residents in the vicinity who had evacuated their homes that their property and belongings would be safe as General Operations Force (GOF) personnel were keeping watch there round-the-clock.
About 20 residents who had refused to vacate their homes will have food sent to them.
