India monsoon: 36 dead after landslides in Maharashtra 
Rescuers have been recovering bodies from under debris but more people are feared missing. The rescue operations have been hampered by heavy downpours and foggy conditions. Maharashtra is experiencing its heaviest monsoon season in July in 40 years, which experts say is a direct result of climate change. More than 30 people have died in the state's largest city, Mumbai over the past week in a landslide and a wall collapse caused by heavy downpours. Raigad district collector Nidhi Chaudhary told news agency ANI that 32 people died at Taliye village and four were killed in Mahad city.
