Afghanistan: Death Toll Rises to 150 Following Floods

The heavy floods that hit the north of Afghanistan last week have claimed the lives of at least 150 people.

BBC reported that due to the heavy flooding in many areas, many Afghanis remain without electricity. In addition, many roads have been blocked, which has made it increasingly difficult for the authorities to provide aid to its constituents.
