Afghanistan earthquake survivors dig by hand as aid is delayed

At least 1,000 people killed by a magnitude 5.9 earthquake in remote, landslide-prone regions of eastern Afghanistan.

Survivors dug by hand through villages reduced to rubble by a magnitude 5.9 earthquake that struck early on Wednesday about 160km (100 miles) southeast of Kabul, in arid mountains dotted with small settlements near the border with Pakistan. The quake was Afghanistan's deadliest in 20 years, and officials said the toll could rise. An estimated 1,500 others were reported injured.
