Afghanistan landslide 'kills at least 350'

At least 350 people have been killed and hundreds more are missing after a landslide hit the north-east Afghan, the UN has said.

Hundreds of homes were buried under mud and rocks when a section of a mountain collapsed following torrential rain in the province of Badakhshan.

Rescuers have reached the area and are searching for survivors, but do not have proper equipment.

David Loyn reports Kabul.
