More Than 100 Dead in Afghanistan, Pakistan Avalanches
More than 100 people are dead after areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan were hit with avalanches. In one northern Afghanistan town near the border with Pakistan, 45 people were killed. Many who died either froze to death or were trapped in cars. “Avalanches have buried two entire villages,” an Afghan government official told AFP. Search-and-rescue efforts have been thwarted by worsening weather and blocked roads. Kabul’s airport has been shut down due to icy conditions on its runways.
