GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — A mudslide has killed two people in northern Guatemala and left eight more missing.

National disaster agency spokesman David de Leon says a woman and a baby were swept away by the movement of earth, water and rocks.

About 25 homes were damaged in the Wednesday night slide. Photographs provided by the agency showed homes and vehicles buried in the debris.
