Beijing:  Chinese authorities say rescuers have dug out 58 bodies from a massive landslide at a construction waste dump in southern China more than two weeks ago.

The Shenzhen city government said today that authorities identified 52 of the 58 bodies and that another 25 people remain missing.

In the December 20 disaster, a mountain of construction waste that had been piled up against a hill collapsed during heavy rains onto an industrial park in Shenzhen. The city near Hong Kong makes products ranging from cellphones to cars, and attracts workers from all parts of China.

Authorities have arrested 11 people on the charge of negligently causing a serious accident. City officials have bowed in public apology over the incident.
