    At least 150 were buried in the Philippines late Wednesday after a landslide struck a gold mining site in the south. So far, 25 have been reported dead. The landslide happened in the middle of the night, and many of the victims were sleeping. Army soldiers are heading to the area to dig out survivors and bodies.  The site of the landslide, Compostela Valley, is where more than 1,000 were killed last month in floods.
