At least six people were killed and six others  missing early Tuesday after heavy monsoon rains triggered landslides in a mountain village in Nepal.

Local police authorities, through Inspector  Rabindra Khadka, disclosed that the landslides buried five houses in the village of Satyavati in Gulmi district.

Khadka added that five houses were also buried in the village of Satyavati in Gulmi district.

“We have recovered six bodies. Six other people are still missing,” he told dpa, saying the  village experienced heavy rainfall on Monday night.

At least 90 people were killed and 29 others went missing in floods and landslides that hit Nepal last week, with 11,000 people displaced.

The country’s eastern and central regions were the hardest hit in the disaster.

The government has come under criticism for the speed of its recovery efforts in the flood affected areas.

The monsoon in Nepal, which lasts from July to September, triggers disastrous landslides and flooding every year, killing hundreds of people.
