The rescue team currently faces the challenge of managing hundreds of people who have come to see what has happened in Bello.
A police officer said that “we now have the inconvenience of people coming to look at what happened.”
Parking space for aid workers is limited and the arrival of visitors to the site has reduced this space even more. Authorities have urged workers to not be distracted from their work by the tourists.
The landslide covered some 35 houses in the hillside area La Gabriela with up to 50,000 cubic metres of mud.
This tragedy is the deadliest single disaster of this year’s prolonged winter season.
Until now 50 bodies have been recovered and 73 people are still missing.
