Magnitude 6.3 earthquake strikes northwestern Afghanistan

The earthquakes that hit western Afghanistan have killed or injured more than 4,000 people and Injured 2,000 People

About 2,000 houses have been completely destroyed in the two 6.3-magnitude earthquakes, said the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA).

“So far, the statistics we have received regarding casualties are unfortunately exceeding 4,000 people. According to our data, in about 20 villages, approximately 1,980 to 2,000 houses have completely collapsed,” Mullah Saiq, spokesman for ANDMA, said at a press conference in Kabul.

The earthquakes struck Herat Province and neighbouring areas on Saturday afternoon, with the first tremor occurring at around 11.10 local time (0640 GMT).

A total of more than 1,000 rescuers in 35 rescue teams from different institutions are carrying out relief efforts in the affected areas, said the spokesman.

Mohammad Hasan Akhund, Afghanistan’s acting prime minister, led a group of officials to visit the affected region in Herat Province on Monday.

China on Sunday provided the Afghan Red Crescent with 200,000 US dollars in cash as emergency humanitarian assistance to aid its rescue and disaster relief efforts.
