ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Seven people of a family have been killed as a result of a rockslide in Sawakai district eastern Kunar province, an official said on Tuesday.

Shah Khesraw, the district’s administrative chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident took place in Dewa Gul valley on Monday night.

A huge boulder rolled down the mountain and hit a house, leaving seven people dead and one inured, the official said.

The wounded boy is under treatment in Asadabad Civil Hospital. The rockslide was apparently induced by heavy rains in recent days.

Dr. Ihsanullah Fazli, head of the civil hospital, said the boy’s condition was improving.
