Flash floods have killed at least twenty people, including children, in southern Afghanistan. UN agency coordinating relief efforts, in a statement, said that floods engulfed up to two-thousand homes and swept away cars in Herat province. Afghan government officials said that army helicopters are busy rescuing some 500 people stranded in the flooded districts, including Kandahar city. They said at least 10 people, including children, are still missing in Arghandab, Daman, Spin Boldak and Dand districts. Rescue officials said that rugged mountainous terrain, heavy snowfall and lack of roads are impeding the pace of immediate relief and rescue operations.
