Rescue workers in eastern Afghanistan are scrambling to reach survivors after the deadliest earthquake in decades struck a remote border region.
At least 1,000 people have been killed and hundreds are trapped under rubble.
The earthquake struck in a rural, mountainous area in Paktika province, about 46 kilometres (28 miles) from the city of Khost.
People are using whatever they can find, and even their hands, to dig out bodies.
