ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Two children were among four people killed as a result of rockslide on a house in the eastern province of Kunar on Saturday, an official said.

The incident took place in the morning when a rock fell from a mountain on a house in the Chakandi area of Chapa Dara district, the provincial police chief said.

Brig. Gen. Abdul Habib Syedkheli told Pajhwok Afghan News: “Ihsanullah, his wife, their son, 2, and daughter, 6, were killed as a result of the rockslide caused by rainfall.”

But the provincial head of the Afghanistaninfo-icon Natural Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA), Ghulam Ali Sobat, was unaware of the incident. He said no one had suffered losses in recent rainfall.
