Chinese state-run broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV)  confirms that more than 120 people are missing and 5 bodies have been found after a landslide in southwest China's Sichuan province buried more than 40 houses.

The landslide occurred at 6 a.m. local time in Xinmo village in Mao County.

Emergency response measures have been activated and 780 rescue workers are on the scene, the broadcaster said. Chinese President Xi Jinping has ordered "all-out efforts" to save those buried.
