At least seven members of a family were killed when the roof of their house collapsed in Afghanistan’s eastern Kapisa province on Friday night.
The incident took place in Dara-e-Ghawus village of Nijrab district, an administrative district official told Xinhua on Saturday.
Dawn reported that the ill-fated couple and their five children lived in a portion of a double-storey house that was apparently in a dilapidated condition. They were sleeping when the incident happened.
The house’s roof was badly soaked by the recent heavy rainfalls that ultimately wrecked and caused the tragic incident.
Such incidents are common in Afghanistan as most of the houses and shops in the countryside have been built with mud and woods.
