At least 124 people died of cold in Afghanistan in 15 days, says Minister

At least 124 people have died in Afghanistan in the past 15 days due to extreme cold and falling temperatures.

A spokesman for Afghanistan’s Ministry of Disaster Management said the winter was more severe than it was in the past decade, killing more than 70,000 cattle.

According to media reports, the activities of several aid agencies in the country had also been suspended after the Afghan Taliban banned women from working under the NGO.

On this occasion, a government minister said that despite the deaths, there will be no change in the orders.

Acting minister for disaster management Mullah Mohammad Abbas Akhund told the BBC that heavy snow had fallen in most parts of Afghanistan, cutting roads, while military helicopters were sent to help, but the helicopter could not land due to mountainous areas.

According to the acting minister, the intensity of the cold is likely to reduce in the next 10 days, but he is worried about the loss of lives.
