A villager carries wood in an area of Panabaj, Guatemala on Saturday, March 17, 2007. A deadly mudslide was spawned by rains associated with Hurricane Stan in October 2005. Initially, up to 500 Tzujutil Maya villagers were believed to have been killed by the mudslide, which essentially  wiped away the town. The area pictured once featured many homes. Forensic anthropologists from the Fundación de Antropología Forense de Guatemala have been working to unearth the bodies of the missing and have recovered more than 100. They have also found the number of missing to be lower than originally thought, after many people were located in shelters or living in other towns after the disaster.
