Around 250 to 350 people have reportedly been killed after a massive landslide buried a village in Argo district on Friday, according to the government officials.
Figures on the number of people killed in the disaster varied as officials try to gather precise information from the village of Ab-e-Barek.
The estimated number of dead on Saturday has surpassed 2500 people, the local officials said. This unseen landslide was caused by flooding related to ice and snow melt.
