MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Two children have been killed and a third injured in a landslide in Maimana, the capital of northwestern Faryab province, an official said on Thursday.

Provincial police spokesman, 2nd Lt. Mohammad Karim Yuresh, told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident took place in the Bibi Ayena area of the eighth police district.

He said the children -- aged between 10 and 15 -- were playing close to the hill, whose foot had been dug up by residents, Yuresh added.

Public Health Director Dr. Maruf confirmed receiving one dead and two injured children. One of the injured succumbed to his wounds later on, he said. The third child is said to be in stable condition.
