A landslide in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region blocked a section of highway on Saturday, leaving 400 vehicles stranded, local police said.
The landslide occurred in Kizilsu Kirgiz autonomous prefecture around noon and buried a 50-meter-section of National Highway 314, prefecture police said.
More than 400 vehicles were stuck on the road as of 3 p.m., but no one was hurt in the landslide, police said.
Police are cleaning up the debris, but as the total volume of the debris was estimated at 10,000 cubic meters, the road is not expected to reopen until Sunday afternoon.
Food and water have been delivered to the stranded motorists, police said.
National Highway 314, with a total length of 1,948 kilometers, runs east from Urumqi, the regional capital of Xinjiang, along the southern foot of Mount Tianshan before ending in the city of Kunjirap near the Pakistan-China border.
