Three missing after German landslide

Three people are missing after a landslide swept away two houses in Nachterstedt, Germany.

Both homes - one of which collapsed completely - stood near a former open-cast coal mine.

There had been heavy rain in the area, and experts say mining activity had probably made the land unstable.
