GUIYANG - A landslide in southwest China's Guizhou Province left one dead and six others still buried under boulders on Saturday, local authorities said.

The accident happened at 6:40 pm in Changshun County, when workers at a cement factory used explosives to get rock materials from a hill and triggered a landslide, the local government said in a statement.

Nine workers were buried immediately. Of them three were pulled out alive but one died on the way to hospital, said the statement.

Rescue work for the six missing is under way.
