SHENZHEN -- As of 11 a.m. on Thursday, a total of 73 bodies have been recovered from the Shenzhen landslide, with another four people remaining unaccounted for, the rescue headquarters said.
Rescuers are still searching for the missing.
Of the 17 people hospitalized after the landslide, eleven have been discharged.
All 42 criminal suspects responsible for the landslide have been arrested so far.
No epidemics have been reported at the rescue area.
As of Thursday, 4,630 employees from the affected enterprises in the landslide have been properly resettled while local vegetable farmers whose fields were buried received compensation. All the families of the victims have reached compensation agreements.
The landslide occurred on Dec. 20, 2015 when a mountain of construction waste collapsed and hit an industrial park in the southern Chinese city.
The incident was the result of work safety mismanagement rather than geological causes, according to a State Council investigation.
