At least five people were killed and 17 others went missing after heavy rains and floods hit Afghanistan’s western province of Herat, a local official said Tuesday. "Five people were killed and 17 others went missing when flash floods engulfed vast areas in Adraskan, Zawol and Obe districts of Herat province over the last 24 hours," Jailani Farhad, a provincial government spokesman, told Xinhua. The floods also swept away tens of residential houses, lands and orchards in the districts and demolished a large part of Herat-Kandahar highways in Shindand district, resulting in closure of the roads to traffic, the spokesman added. The rescue team began operation in the affected districts, where nearly 100 households have so far been shifted to safe areas, said the spokesman. One person has also been reported dead after the Kabul river flooded in the country’s capital, where the government issued a warning asking people to leave flood-prone areas and houses located at the two banks of the river, as the rising overflow was uncontrollable.
