Six people died and 21 others were missing after a landslide hit a village in southwestern China, Chinese state media reported Thursday.

The official Xinhua News Agency said 77 houses collapsed or were buried in the landslide Wednesday night in the village of Yingping in Guizhou province. It said 21 people were injured.
