Rescuers in Afghanistan have given up hope of finding any more survivors in a double landslide that is feared to have killed more than 2,500 people.

Earth and mud swamped an entire village in the remote north-east province of Badakhshan on Friday, but a search operation has now stopped.

David Loyn reports from the scene.
