QALA-I-NAW (PANinfo-icon): Three people were killed and two others injured by rockslides in the northwestern province of Badghis on Sunday, officials said.

A huge rock fell on their house in the Tagab Best village of Jawand district, provincial council head, Faizullah Azimi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Some people escaped 30 minutes ahead of the incident, but three men, a woman and a child were trapped inside when boulders hit their houses.

Residents rescued the wounded woman and her child, but the men were found dead, Azimi said, adding nearly 120 houses were damaged.

"Many people cried the mountain is going to collapse and residents should flee," said a resident of the village, Nooruddin. Many fled, but three men died in the incident, he added.
