YAOUNDE, 28th November, 2022 (WAM) -- A landslide in Cameroon's capital Yaounde on Sunday killed at least 14 people who were attending a funeral, Reuters quoted the region's governor said.

"We are carrying the corpses to the mortuary of the central hospital, while the search for other people, or corpses, is still ongoing," Naseri Paul Bea, governor of Cameroon's Centre region, told media at the scene.

Dozens of people were attending a funeral on a soccer pitch at the base of a 20-metre-high soil embankment, which collapsed on top of them, witnesses told Reuters.
