Police officers, firefighters and soldiers worked through the night in a desperate bid to find seven people still unaccounted for among the sludge and rubble. Dozens of houses were buried when hillsides collapsed after torrential downpours in Hiroshima that saw more than a month's average rainfall descend in just three hours.
