KOLONTAR, Hungary (AP) -- Rescue services say they have found two more victims of Hungary's catastrophic flood of red sludge, bringing the death toll to seven.

Rescue agency spokesman Tibor Dobson says the unidentified victims were found Friday afternoon near Devecser, a town in western Hungary inundated Monday by the sludge. He said they were most likely residents missing from the nearby town of Kolontar.

Dobson gave no further details, but where the bodies were found suggests they were swept some two miles away by the ferocious torrent. One more Kolontar resident is still missing.
