A total of 23 bodies have been recovered as of Sunday after days of search for the 27 missing people when a landslide hit Myanmar's Kachin state last week, the local 7-Day News reported Monday.

Two of the bodies have been unidentified.

Search continued for the remaining four still missing in the Hpakant mining region.

A massive landslide occurred due to the collapse of a 91.4-meter-high pit wall of an unused jade mining site owned by Ayeyar Yadanar Company in Seik Mu village tract in the township on Tuesday morning.

A similar landslide took place in San-Khar village and Lone-Khin village in the region on July 14, killing at least 17 jade scavengers with 43 others injured.
