Kabul: Afghan officials on Thursday struggled to reach a remote area hit by an earthquake that killed 1,000 people, but poor communication and a lack of proper roads hampered their efforts, officials said.
A 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck early Wednesday in arid mountains with small settlements near the border with Pakistan, about 160 km southeast of Kabul.
