Afghan President Hamid Karzai visits landslide victims
Afghan President Hamid Karzai visited a refugee camp for victims of a deadly landslide, trying to calm villagers angered by the slow delivery of emergency aid and an initial government refusal to help retrieve bodies.
More than 4,000 villagers were displaced by Friday’s disaster, which buried some 300 homes in the northern village of Aab Bareek in up to 50 metres of mud, killing hundreds, and leaving nearly 700 houses uninhabitable.
