Around 100 people are feared dead, trapped under mud and rocks due to landslides caused by two strong earthquakes in Afghanistan. The first quake measured 5.4 on the Richter in the Hindu Kush region and then no sooner than that a 5.7 scaled aftershock happened north of Kabul.
These are the very first pictures to come from one scene as bewildered villagers assess the damage. Details are still sketchy but between 25 and 30 houses were destroyed across remote mountain villages in the Burka district in the northern province of Baghlan. The U.N. said in a statement that it was working with local authorities to try to help in the rescue effort but did not provide details.
This man, Abdullah, says he's lost eight members of his family and was urging the film crews to help remove other people from the rubble. A Principal Governor said two women had been rescued, the UN confirmed there'd been one death.
