    Rescue workers are still searching 36 hours after a landslide buried a miners' camp in Tibet. The first body was found on Saturday, out of a total 83 miners believed to have been trapped beneath 2 million cubic meters of earth. At this point, the chances of finding even a single survivor are “slim,” according to a rescue worker. The efforts of the 2,000 rescue workers have been hampered by poor weather, altitude sickness, and more landslides.
