(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 23 - Among the over a thousand victims of the devastating earthquake that struck Afghanistan there are many children.

This is what the doctors of the country say to the BBC online.


   At the moment, the heavy rains that hit the areas hit by the 6.1 magnitude earthquake in the south-east - with at least 1,500 injured - are hindering the work of the rescuers, while the communications service has suffered interruptions.

The Taliban authorities have called for greater efforts on international aid.

"We can't get to some areas," said one of the spokespersons.


    The UN is among the organizations committed to bringing aid to the remote area of ​​Paktika, the most affected by the earthquake.

Survivors said they saw their villages completely flat on the ground near the epicenter of the earthquake, damaged roads and electric poles blown away.

It is feared that the number of victims may rise as the hours pass because many have been trapped under the rubble of their homes.
