      Rescue workers are continue to dig the disaster site which stretches along a few miles along the foot of the Sugar Loaf mountain and Hill Station. Several bodies have been found near the beach along the Atlantic Coastal waters of Freetown. Over 350 victims were laid to rest last Thursday, 17th of August 2017, in a mass multi-faith burial which took place in Waterloo, in the east of the capital. 200 of those laid to rest are children. Over 600 people are yet to be accounted for, presumed buried under the tons of mud and rocks.
