A terrifying and tragic mudslide video from Arequipa in Peru (videos)

RT has uploaded a video onto Youtube of a terrifying mudslide in the Arequipa region of Peru, which apparently happened on Friday.

The landslide apparently killed three people – it is not clear whether the victims were in this car or elsewhere in the landslide. It is clear that a number of vehicles were caught up in the mudslide.

The same rainfall appears to have been responsible for this riverbank erosion event that led to the loss of a hotel in the town of Lircay in Angaraes on Thursday.
