THE death toll as a result of the landslide that buried dozens of houses in Naga City in Cebu last Thursday rose to 59 yesterday as joint Philippine National Police Crime Laboratory and National Bureau of Investigation personnel continued their Disaster Victim Identification process in the area, Police Regional Office 7 director, Chief Superintendent Debold M.
