A landslide in Turkey's eastern Erzincan region has buried a gold mine, and at least nine workers at the site have been declared missing by authorities.

Footage circulating on social media captured the moment a torrent of muddy earth burst into a valley near the mine in the İliç district.

Turkey's interior minister, Ali Yerlikaya, said 400 people from the country's emergency agency, AFAD, had been dispatched to the mine to rescue the trapped workers.
