At least 350 people are dead and some 2,000 others feared missing after a massive landslide buried parts of a village in northeast Afghanistan.
People dug with their bare hands to try to find survivors after a section of a mountain collapsed following heavy rain.
Mud crashed down onto hundreds of homes, with rescuers struggling to reach the remote area in the province of Badakhshan which borders Tajikistan.
Afghanistan is holding a day of mourning for the victims of a double landslide that turned a northeastern village into a cemetery.
The search for survivors has been called off and the focus is on helping the injured and displaced.
The provincial governor of Badakhshan said there was no hope for more than 2,000 people believed buried.
