Afghanistan’s state-run news agency says an earthquake in the country’s east has killed 1,000 people and injured 1,500 others. That latest figure came from the Bakhtar News Agency as officials tried to help those affected by Wednesday’s temblor. Neighbouring Pakistan’s Meteorological Department said the quake’s epicentre was in Afghanistan’s Paktika province, some 50 kilometers southwest of the city of Khost.
