Un migliaio di morti e 1200 feriti solo nella provincia di Paktika, la più colpita dal terremoto che ha colpito la notte scorsa il sud est dell’Afghanistan, al confine con il Pakistan, ma che è stato avvertito in un raggio di 500 chilometri. Le case crollate sono centinaia e innumerevoli anche i capi di bestiame distrutti. Un colpo durissimo per l’Afghanistan, governato dai talebani e alle prese con una crisi economica ed alimentare terribile. E purtroppo il bilancio delle vittime sembra destinato ad aumentare. Le istituzioni afghane invocano aiuti internazionali, per cercare di recuperare le persone sotto le macerie e portare soccorso ai sopravvissuti. Cordoglio al popolo afghano è stato espresso da tutto il mondo. Papa Francesco ha auspicato l’invio di aiuti alla popolazione.
