A landslide on the main highway linking Colombia's two biggest cities has killed at least six people and trapped an unknown number under tons of earth.
Antioquia state rescue chief Mario Parodi says four people were rescued and hospitalized after the Wednesday morning disaster covered all four lanes of the highway linking Bogota with Medellin. Rescuers with dogs joined the search for victims.
Parodi said two motorcycles, a truck and two small vehicles were buried by the slide, which covered two football fields.
He said the highway would be closed for several days. Landslides are not uncommon in Colombia's rugged mountainous terrain.

A 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Marche region in central Italy, just hours after a 5.4-magnitude tremor damaged buildings and cut power lines across the area. Buildings in the region have been damaged, but there have been no reports of fatalities.
A series of powerful aftershocks between magnitude 4 and 4.9 struck the area about five hours after the first tremor.
The strongest earthquake occurred 9.18 p.m. on Wednesday, 71 km (44 miles) east of Perugia. The United States Geological Survey reported it as a 6.0 magnitude temblor, while Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology said it was a 5.9.
"It was a very strong, apocalyptic earthquake - people were screaming in the street, and now the lights are cut off," said Marco Rinaldi, the mayor of Ussita, a community of 400 that was also affected by the initial earthquake. "Many houses have collapsed. Our area is devastated."
