Massive landslide kills more than 50 in Afghanistan

Disaster Alert

More than 50 people are feared dead in a landslide in northern Afghanistan on Tuesday.
The deputy governor for Badakshan province, Gul Muhammad Bedar, told reporters that 90 homes in a village near Afghanistan’s border with Tajikistan have completely collapsed.
He said there were no accurate figures on casualties but the death toll was feared to be above 50.
He said a rescue operation led by district and provincial authorities is being hampered by a lack of resources and bad connectivity to the remote village.
Last year, a landslide in the area killed more than 2,500 and destroyed hundreds of homes.
