2,100 FEAR DEAD IN AFGHANISTAN LANDSLIDE'S DISASTER

KABUL, Afghanistan  - People stand near the site of a landslide at Badakhshan province in Afghanistan. Officials have given up hope of finding any survivors, putting the death toll at more than 2,100, as the aid effort focused on the more than 4,000 people displaced. 
Officials expressed concern the unstable hillside above the site of the disaster may cave in again, threatening the thousands of homeless and hundreds of rescue workers who have arrived in the remote province.
The landslide was triggered by heavy rain buried large sections of a remote northeastern Afghan village last Friday. Villagers looked on helplessly and the governor appealed for shovels to help dig through the mass of mud that flattened every home in its path.
The mountainous area in Badakhshan province has experienced days of heavy rain and flooding, and the side of a cliff collapsed onto the village of Hobo Barik around midday. Landslides and avalanches are frequent in Afghanistan, but Friday’s was one of the deadliest.
