    Over 200 people and some 70 vehicles were trapped in a mountain town after landslides cut off a highway in Tibet on Saturday.

    According to officials, no casualties have been reported yet, Xinhua said.


    Rescuers have rushed to the landslide site in Ra’og Town, Qamdo County in east Tibet to help the trapped drivers and evacuate passengers, said Li Shijie, head of the rescue team. “We have prepared food and medical services for them. But it may take several days to clear up the site.”


    A road section of more than 100 metres has been covered with mud and rocks have piled up as high as eight metres in some places, the rescue team said.
