Rescuers are digging through mud and debris in the hunt for those missing after mudslides in Colombia left more than 200 dead.

More than 1,000 soldiers and police are involved in the relief effort in Putumayo province.

Heavy rain flooded the town of Mocoa in the country's south-west, with mud and rocks burying whole neighbourhoods and forcing residents to flee their homes.

President Juan Manuel Santos said that 44 of the identified dead are children.

There were at least 400 people injured and 200 missing.
