A landslide in Rize, Turkey

I know very little about this landslide, which apparently occurred in Rize, Turkey on 25th September:

The size of the blocks that slipped in quite impressive.  It may be significant that the slide occurred in the section of road for which there is no masonry wall supporting the cut slope.
