Two children among seven killed in Bali landslide

Unrelenting heavy rain and poor slope conditions caused a landslide in Songan Village in the north-east of Indonesia's popular tourist island at 11pm local time yesterday (2am AEDT).

A number of others were seriously injured, and they have been taken to hospital.
