Afghanistan landslide survivors plead for help

3 May 2014 Last updated at 19:43 BST

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.

They have stopped digging through the earth and mud that swamped a whole village in the remote north-east province of Badakhshan on Friday.

Officials now say the site has become a mass grave for the village of Ab Barik.

Survivors have begged for help and shelter as many face another night in near freezing conditions on the open hillside.
