Los Angeles (AFP) – The confirmed death toll from a huge U.S. landslide rose to 29 Wednesday including three children, officials said a week and a half after the disaster in Washington state.

Twenty people are still believed missing after a wall of mud and debris crashed down on the town of Oso on March 22.

Of the 29 bodies recovered, only 22 have been identified, said the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The dead include a four-month-old baby girl, as well as a six-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl, it said.

Dozens of dwellings in the rural town located 60 miles from Seattle were wiped out in the landslide, which also destroyed part of a highway.
