Six people were buried in a landslide in northeast China's Liaoning province early Sunday, officials said.

The victims were living in a temporary shed at a construction site in Zhongshan district of Dalian city when the landslide occurred around 4.20 a.m., triggered by incessant rain.

Their bodies were later found by rescuers, officials told Xinhua.

Since Saturday night, Dalian has been hit by over 100 mm of torrential rainfall.

Many vehicles, motorcycles and boats were damaged in the landslide.
