BREAKING: Over 300 Tourists Trapped After Mudslide

Around 300 tourists, including more than 100 foreigners, are trapped in the mountainous Elbrus area of the Kabardino-Balkar Republic in the Russian Caucasus following a mudslide.

Russian emergency services are preparing to evacuate the tourists.

Video footage posted on Twitter shows powerful flows of water which have apparently washed out the road. Three cars carrying people fell into the river, while two people were saved and the emergency services continue to look for three others who are missing.
