A woman and three children were killed, and three other women and children were critically injured, when the roof of a house fell owing to torrential rains in Nangarhar province, eastern Afghanistan, on Wednesday night.

According to local sources, a roof collapse in the Spin Ghar district of Nangarhar province resulted in four deaths and three critical injuries as a result of the province’s heavy rainfalls. The ill-fated, poverty-stricken man, according to sources, lost family members, as the roof collapse killed them on the spot.
