JAKARTA, Feb. 27 (CGTN) -- At least 60 people are believed to have been buried by a landslide that hit an illegal gold mine in Indonesia's Sulawesi on Tuesday night, according to the Indonesia Disaster Agency.

One person has been found dead, and 13 others were rescued by 5 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

"When dozens of people were mining for gold at the location, suddenly beams and supporting boards they used broke due to unstable land and numerous mining shafts," disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement cited by Reuters.
