Afghanistan avalanche: Rescue efforts 'face enormous task'
Huge new avalanches have hit Afghanistan's Panjshir Valley, closing off areas that were already difficult to reach, the provincial governor says.
Abdul Rahman Kabiri told the BBC that new avalanches 40m (130ft) high have inundated new areas in the north-eastern province.
President Ashraf Ghani said on Saturday that at least 286 people have died throughout the country in recent days.
