Kabul, Afghanistan

Over the last few days in the North of Afghanistan due to snow and frost killed 27 children. On Thursday, January 26, reports “Xinhua”.

According to Rahmatulla Hashar, head of the County Darzab, the road connecting the villages and health centres in the province of Jawzjan, were blocked by heavy snow.

According to the Agency, in some areas of the province formed a half-meter layer of snow. The temperature in the North of Afghanistan these days dropped below zero.

Cold is often the cause of death of people living in tropical countries. So, in January of 2016 due to the cold snap in Thailand killed 14 residents of the Northern and North-Eastern provinces. Then the temperature dropped to one or two degrees above zero.
