The death toll from the floods that occurred in Afghanistan as a result of heavy rains has risen to 30, including 26 who died in the center of the country, according to what the authorities announced Sunday.

A spokesman for the National Disaster Management Authority, Shafiullah Rahimi, said the total death toll has reached 31 people across the country as a result of the floods since Friday, and extensive damage has been caused to property and farmland.

Rahimi added that 26 people died in the Jalraz district, 46 km east of Kabul, after the rains swept away hundreds of homes built mostly of mud.


He continued, saying that four others were killed in Kabul and more than 70 people were injured in the two regions, noting that at least 40 are missing.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid issued a message of condolence appealing to aid groups and the Kabul authorities to help the bereaved families.

Last year’s rainy season floods killed dozens in Afghanistan.
