At least one hundred and twenty four people have died in freezing temperatures in Afghanistan in the past fortnight.

In a statement, the Acting Minister of disaster Management, Mr. Mullah Akhund revealed that about seventy thousand livestock had also perished in what has been described as the coldest winter in a decade.

According to Mr. Akhund, many aid agencies suspended operations in recent weeks after the Taliban banned Afghan women from working for non-governmental organizations.

The Acting Minister, who said many areas of Afghanistan were now completely cut off by snow, also revealed that military helicopters had been sent to rescue the situation, but could not land in the most mountainous regions.

He said the forecast for the next ten days indicates that temperatures will become warm but however, worried about a rising death toll of Afghans and their livestock.
