At least two children died in a landslide near a town just north of Medellin where thousands of worshipers were traveling for Good Friday mass.
The incident took place just outside Girardota, a small town where every year on Good Friday thousands of faithful gather for prayer.
The landslide buried the house and killed the two children. Four adults were taken from the rubble alive.
So far, at least 87 people have died in Colombia due to the rainy season this year. Antioquia — with 13 dead — is one of the hardest hit departments.
Colombia’s meteorological institute has warned that the worst of this year’s rainy season — expected to last until June — is yet to come.
