Obama offers Karzai additional aid after killer landslide

Landslide-affected Afghan villagers line-up for relief supplies at the scene of the disaster in the Argo district of Badakhshan on May 4, 2014President Barack Obama offered his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai additional US assistance Sunday to relief efforts after a landslide killed hundreds of people in northern Afghanistan. Much of Aab Bareek village in Badakhshan province was swallowed on Friday by a fast-moving tide of mud and rock that swept down the hillside and left almost no trace of hundreds of homes. During a phone call between the two presidents, Obama “affirmed the support of the American people as the Afghans respond to this tragedy and offered additional US assistance to the ongoing relief efforts,” a White House statement said.
