- The death toll rises to 271, according to Guatemala's government
- Many more are still missing, the public ministry said
- The side of a hill crashed down on a village, engulfing homes
Many more people are still missing from the October 1 landslide in El Cambray, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Guatemala City.
Heavy rains caused the side of a towering hill to break loose suddenly and crash down on the village.
Since then, residents and rescuers have shoveled and even burrowed with their hands in search of the hundreds of victims the public ministry estimates were inside the dozens of homes that were instantly engulfed by the landslide.
Tuesday, the Red Cross asked for donations of dry ice for its makeshift morgue, where the bodies kept coming.
