230 killed in avalanches in Afghanistan
The number of fatalities after violent avalanches in Afghanistan is now approaching 230. There have been some of the worst avalanche in Afghanistan in 30 years, said a governor.

Officials on Thursday stated that the number of dead has risen to 229 people. In addition, many are missing. Most of the dead, at least 180 of them, have been killed in the Panjshir province north of Kabul.

- Many people are still trapped under the snow, said deputy director of the national disaster authority, Mohammad Aslam Sayas, to the news agency DPA.

Another 25 people were killed in the northern Badakshan province, while 13 people died in Parwan. 11 others were killed in Baghlan respectively, Badghis and Bamiyan.

- We have sent our rescuers to all areas that suffer as a result of this natural disaster, says the Deputy Director.

There has been snowing north of the country for the last two days, and the weather forecast suggests that there will be even more snow towards the weekend. Local officials say that there is a risk of a humanitarian crisis in the worst affected areas.

- We have not experienced so much snow or as many avalanches in 30 years, said acting governor of the province of Panjshir, Abdulrahman Kabiri.
