The government of Afghanistan, controlled by the Taliban, today raised the number of deaths to 342 and the number of injuries to more than 1,630 from the floods that occurred in the north of the country, where authorities and humanitarian organizations are working around the clock to distribute aid.

The majority of fatalities are concentrated in the province of Baghlan, with 315 deaths in various areas of the region, according to the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation, in a statement.

More than 2,655 homes were completely or partially destroyed in the floods.

Amid the chaos unleashed by days of incessant rain and floods that buried entire cities and destroyed essential infrastructure, such as bridges and roads, the Taliban admit that the number of victims could continue to rise.

Disaster management teams under the command of the Taliban, who took control of the country in August 2021, are distributing tents and food to survivors.

The United Nations Food Program (WFP) in Afghanistan has warned that most of Baghlan province is inaccessible to trucks.
