In the southern Philippines, the sun was shining on Sunday, after almost nonstop rain for nearly two weeks. Officially, the landslide on Friday, one of the worst in this country in recent memory, killed 57 people. However, more than 1,800 are still missing, including more than 200 school children. Rescuers were still hampered by the soft mud that covered practically every inch of this village.
A United States military team arrived Sunday to assess the situation and provide help. Two American military vessels and two helicopters arrived late Sunday morning. Here's an update from ABC News.
