Myanmar's Suu Kyi blames lack of safety regulations for deadly landslide
By Aung Hla Tun and Hnin Yadana Zaw YANGON/HPAKANT, Myanmar (Reuters) - A disregard for the rule of law in the jade mining industry in Myanmar had made accidents such as the landslide that killed more than 100 people at the weekend a common occurrence, Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi said on Thursday. Authorities called off search efforts late on Wednesday in Hpakant, with as many as 100 people estimated still missing after a huge slag heap of mining debris gave way on Saturday and buried a makeshift settlement of migrant workers as they slept. "As far as we understand, it was the fifth similar incident this year," Suu Kyi told Radio Free Asia's Myanmar language service during an interview broadcast on Thursday.
