The death toll from the mudslide which took place in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil has risen to 12, with twenty more people reported missing.

The landslide happened in Sapucaia last week. It was caused by torrential rains which also hit other nearby states.

More than 2 million people have been affected by the disaster since early October when the rainy season began.
