Afghan Quakes

A huge cleanup is underway after two earthquakes shook eastern Afghanistan on Friday.

At least 21 people were killed by the quakes and it’s proving to be hard to get help to villages in the worst hit area, which is high up in the mountains.

At least four villages suffered serious damage and around 200 homes were destroyed. Houses in the area are made from dried mud – so they're not very tough – and even small tremors can cause damage.

Some emergency workers have arrived in the area, but it’s too late for some. Villagers have already held funerals for the people who died after they got trapped in the rubble.
