A landslide caused by torrential rains killed three road workers in Mongkhoat, Monghsat District in eastern Shan State yesterday.
The three victims were sleeping inside a tent when the disaster occurred.
U Tin Lin, 35, U Soe Paing, 35, and U Zaw Oo, 40, were buried under stones, earth and mud from the landslide.
Another landslide that occurred on a road in another area on the same day forced the closure of the road. The Myanmar police force, firemen and local volunteers are clearing the blockages.
