A 12-story luxury apartment building was smacked by a landslide and collapsed Saturday. At least one person was killed, and hope was waning that any of the 41 people trapped inside were alive. "There is thin hope for anyone to get out of this alive," Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said Sunday. Rescue workers who dropped sound detectors into holes cut into the wreckage said there were no signs of life.
