The landslide cut off access by the main road to the residential areas at Bukit Antarabangsa, trapping hundreds of residents.

The army has built a temporary access bridge late sunday to smoothen the process of evacuation.

DCP Khalid said on Monday that rescue teams were, therefore, concentrating the search in the area where Dr Yogeswary was found.
Excavations and clearing of the landslide-hit area was halted Sunday due to strong earth movements. Continued overnight rain on Monday raised fresh fears of further landslides.
