The death toll from flash floods in northern Afghanistan has risen to more than 100 with many still missing. Four provinces are affected.
The National Disaster Management Authority said on Saturday that 58 people were killed in Jowzjan province, 32 in Faryab, six in Sar-e-Pul and six others in Badghis.
After days of torrential rain, floodwaters swept through villages, engulfing thousands of houses and leaving many people seeking safety on the roofs of their mud-brick houses.
Officials in Faryab province said nearly 2000 houses were washed away and more than 8000 cattle were killed.
Flooding often occurs during the spring rainy season in northern Afghanistan.
Two weeks ago, a landslide triggered by heavy rains and a small earthquake swept through two villages in Takhar, another northern province, killing four people and destroying around 100 houses.
Forty people died in August in flash floods in eastern and southeastern provinces and some parts of Kabul.
