Boulders and sludge roared down a hill in the northern Himalayas on Friday, burying what was left of a remote village where 202 people already were feared dead in an earlier landslide. In a week of devastation, more than a dozen major landslides have hit the area. Monsoon rain stopped briefly Friday for the first time in weeks, raising hopes for rescue efforts in Malpa, but four new landslides buried the mountain village under 35 feet of rocks and mud.
