At least 60 people have been killed in flash floods across 13 provinces in Afghanistan in the past seven days, the National Disaster Management Authority said on Wednesday.

Five people were injured, the agency said in a statement. It did not specify the casualties by province.
Some 343 homes were destroyed, while 663 more were partially damaged, by the floods in the provinces of Samangar, Takhar, Kapisa, Baghlan, Badakhshan, Badghis, Ghor, Panjshir, Sar-e Pul, Ghazi, Parwan, Bakh and Herat.

The floods also killed 600 livestock and destroyed some 392,000 square meters of agricultural land, the statement said.

Agency spokesman, Omar Mohammadi, said that a survey of the situation was under way and assistance was being provided with the help of international and national organisations.

In April 2015, at least 52 people were killed in a landslide triggered by rain in the north-eastern province of Badakhshan.
