An Israeli search and rescue team landed in Minas Gerais, Brazil on Sunday to assist in the search for hundreds of people missing after a dam collapsed, triggering a deadly mudslide.

The collapsed dam at Vale's Corrego do Feijao mine on Friday buried mining facilities and nearby homes in the town of Brumadinho and killed at least 58 people. 200 people are still missing.
