TLALNEPANTLA, Mexico (AP) — A section of mountain on the outskirts of Mexico City has given way, plunging rocks the size of small homes onto a densely populated neighborhood and leaving at least one person dead and at least 10 missing. Rescue teams scaled a three-story pile of rock where houses had been in a Tlalnepantla neighborhood Friday. They are slowly excavating areas looking for people trapped below. Images from the area showed a segment of the steep, green side of the peak known as Chiquihuite sheared off above a field of giant rubble with closely packed homes remaining on either side.
