A hillside gave way next to a road nearly 300km east of Lima, with heavy rain sending a landslide of mud into the valley below.

Officials say at least two people were killed.

Rescue workers say they found one body and were trying to recover the other one.

A truck caught in the flow of mud was pushed off the road. Parts of a highway were also buried neaby

Such incidents are not uncommon in rural Peru, where landslides and avalanches kill dozens of people and destroy hundreds of homes every year.
