Many people are feared dead after a landslide struck three villages in a mountainous region of eastern Uganda.

The Ugandan Red Cross said 18 people have been confirmed dead, but expected the toll to rise as rescue efforts continue.

In one of the villages in Bududa district, more than 15 houses were buried.

The area lies near Mount Elgon, a major tourist attraction, which is close to the border with Kenya.
